Last flight for Endeavour

We were waiting to see the final trip of the space shuttle Endeavour yesterday but it was delayed and a further delay today due to on-route weather.  It is now expected to takeoff tomorrow.
Endeavour is heading for Los Angeles where it will then be transported to the California Science Center.
On route it is planned to fly low over NASA facilities and to stop at Houston, home of Mission Control.
Here's an interesting video:

Endeavour took of from Kennedy for the last time at 7.22 EDT this morning.  It will fly at 1500 feet across the Space Coast and will then head for LAX where it will arrive on Friday. A fantastic site to see Smiley Smiley
