The original test space shuttle Enterprise flew into New York City, Friday April 27, 2012, on top of a NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. After a flyover of some of The Big Apple’s most famous sights, including the Statue of Liberty, the shuttle and plane touched down late Friday morning at New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport on it’s way to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum which the Enterprise will soon call home.
