Shuttle Endeavour's final trip planned.



    Shuttle Endeavour's Last Stop In Texas
    Space Shuttle Endeavour will stop in El Paso, Texas on its way from Florida to a final destination in California.

    Mounted atop a Boeing 747, the space shuttle Endeavour will fly over key NASA sites as it is ferried from Florida to its future home at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

    The shuttle will depart Kennedy Space Center on Sept. 17 and fly over Florida's Space Coast, then head west over Stennis Space Center in Mississippi and the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans before landing near Houston.

    NASA says the journey continues on Sept. 19 with a refueling stop in El Paso, Texas, and flyovers of White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico and Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base in California, where it will overnight. 

    On Sept. 20, the shuttle heads north over San Francisco and Sacramento, and finally south to Los Angeles.
