Space shuttle Endeavour flies over Ellington Field in Houston atop the shuttle aircraft carrier Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012. Endeavour is making a final trek across the country to the California Science Center in Los Angeles, where it will be permanently displayed.
The space shuttle Endeavour will fly into Los Angeles Friday morning at about 10:30 a.m., after it floats over the Bay Area and Sacramento. Where can you go to check it out?

Places not to gawk include from behind the wheel of a moving car and at L.A. International Airport. Southland transportation officials emphasize they’ll keep traffic moving as the shuttle flies over L.A.
The shuttle is scheduled to land on the LAX inboard south runway. It’ll taxi to the far west end of the airport.
Officials will temporarily store it in a United Airlines hangar. Authorities say they don’t expect the shuttle’s arrival to affect any inbound or outgoing flights.
