Space Shuttle Enterprise to Fly Along Hudson River on Friday

City of Hoboken announces:

On Friday, April 27, NASA's 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft with the space shuttle Enterprise mounted atop will fly at a relatively low altitude over various parts of the New York City metropolitan area. The space shuttle is being flown from Washington Dulles International Airport to John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport.

The flight is expected to occur between 9:30am and 11:30am. The timing and exact route depend on weather and operational constraints.

It is expected that after flying from the Statue of Liberty to the George Washington Bridge along the Hudson River at an altitude of 1,500 feet, the flight will turn west through Bergen County and then return towards New York. Best views of the flight are expected along the waterfront.
