Endeavor's Farewell Flight Over Alameda

Local photographer Les Chan captured these photos of the space shuttle Endeavor as it passed over Bay Farm Island and Alameda's main island Friday morning, piggybacked onto a modified Boeing 747 jet.

"It was awesome!" says Les Chan, who took these photos of the space shuttle Endeavor passing over Alameda and Bay Farm Island around 10:30 Friday morning.

Endeavour will now become a land-bound exhibit in the California Science Center in Los Angeles’ Exposition Park, the latest of the space shuttles to transition to civilian life, on museum duty.

I live on Santa Clara Ave near Grand St.; working in the front garden, heard an approaching jet sound, looked up to my right and there she was! I rarely use the word "awesome," but it describes the sight perfectly. I was completely thrilled...no time for a picture...drank in the view for maybe 30 seconds. Thank you, NASA!
