The orbiter Endeavour and its 747 carrier aircraft landed safely at Kennedy Space Center today after a three-day, piggyback trip from Edwards Air Force Base in California.

The pilot of the 747 made a looping flyaround of Florida's Space Coast, soaring down I-95 to Wickham Road before heading east over the Pineda Causeway and the north over Patrick Air Force Base, Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and Port Canaveral.

The world's largest biplane flew over the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and then passed over Runway 33 before taking off to the north and circling out over the Indian River and the Visitor Complex again on its way toward a touch-down on the southern end of the three-mile KSC landing strip.
