Endeavour to arrive in Los Angeles
William M. WelchLOS ANGELES -- After celebratory low passes over Tucson, Houston and other points to the east, NASA's retired space shuttle Endeavour arrives on its final flight here today and, like most newcomers, will visit tourist sites and confront the dreaded traffic.
State and local law enforcement officers are bracing for the effects on freeways as Endeavour makes low-pass salutes across Southern California, perhaps distracting the eyes of motorists, before landing at Los Angeles International Airport.
Endeavour, the newest spacecraft in the mothballed space shuttle fleet, is destined for a final home as an exhibit at the California Science Center.There it will be a reminder not only of the nation's space program but also of the prominent role aerospace forged in driving development of Southern California in the latter half of the 20th century.
