Shuttle Endeavor Makes Dramatic Final Flight in California (Photos)
Space shuttle Endeavor landed safely at Los Angeles International Airport Friday completing its final voyage to cheers and a hoard of photographers.
Endeavor took off from Edwards Air Force in the morning, flying over the state Capital, Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood Sign and other iconic locations en route to the landing.
At the sound of the plane's engines spectators ran to get the best vantage point, pointing their cameras skyward.
Law enforcement and transportation authorities warned motorists not to "gawk and drive" saying, "If you're driving, please drive and don't try to take in the show simultaneously."
Endeavor has made 25 missions spending 299 days in space and orbited Earth nearly 4,700 times. It is now the second of three remaining shuttles to head to its retirement home.
