NEW YORK — An unusual flying object has landed at New York's Kennedy Airport.
It's the space shuttle Enterprise. Before arriving Friday morning, it zoomed around New York City's airspace, riding on top of a modified jumbo jet.
The shuttle prototype was brought from Washington.
The heralded event included low-altitude flyovers over landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Intrepid on Manhattan's west side.
It's eventually going to make its new home in New York City at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
It won't move into its new home until June. It's scheduled to be open to the public in mid-July.
In the meantime, the Enterprise will remain at Kennedy.
