The space shuttle Endeavour has made the second of two scheduled Texas stops.
Hundreds of people lined streets surrounding the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth to catch a glimpse of the shuttle riding piggyback on a modified Boeing 747.
Many spectators showed up with binoculars and cameras to capture the shuttle like they'd never seen before.
"I've seen it land on its own and take off, but never on piggyback," said one spectator.
The shuttle was on its way from Edwards Air Force Base in California to Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., but to avoid bad weather had to make an unscheduled stop in North Texas.
Some parents took their children out of school early so their kids could see the landing with their own eyes.
"I think it's important for them to be a part of this. We can't go to Houston or to Florida so this is the best we can do," said one mother.
The Boeing 747 made a smooth landing with the shuttle on it's back around 3:15 p.m.
Endeavour will spend the night in Fort Worth and was supposed to depart early Thursday morning, but bad weather forced has postponed the shuttles departure until further notice.
