Space Shuttle Endeavour Makes 2-Day Trip Through LA Streets To Its Final Destination

LOS ANGELES, CA – OCTOBER 12: The space shuttle Endeavour appears to be towed by a Toyota Tundra pickup for the filming of a Toyota commercial while crossing over the 405 freeway as it is transported from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to the California Science Center in Exposition Park where it will be on permanent public display on October 12, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Endeavour was flown cross-country atop NASA’s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft from Kennedy Space Center in Florida to LAX on its last flight ever on September 21. Completed in 1991, Endeavour was built to replace the space shuttle Challenger which disintegrated during a catastrophic re-entry accident. This fifth and final space shuttle orbiter circled the earth 4,671 times and traveled nearly 123 million miles during its 25 missions from 1992 to 2011. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
