Low And Slow Over Tucson Skies ~ The Space Shuttle Makes Its Final Flight!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with KGC Properties LLC, Tucson Property Management & Real Estate

The space shuttle that flew on NASA’s next-to-last shuttle flight is expected to make an appearance today in the Tucson skies on its way to its final home in California.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour will fly over the city of Tucson sometime between 11:30am and noon.  According to news reports, the shuttle, mounted atop a 747 jet, will fly low and slow to honor former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Gifford’s and her husband, Mark Kelly, a former astronaut who commanded Endeavour’s final mission to space in May 2011, who requested the special flyover.

According to NASA, the aircraft ferrying the shuttle drops to an altitude of about 1,500 feet when it performs its low-level flyovers during this final trip!  Lucky to be in Tucson and able to watch this happen today!
