People packed the streets and rooftops in downtown Sacramento for the flyover of the space shuttle Endeavour on Friday morning. They waited for upwards of two hours to see the retiring shuttle before it goes on display at a science museum in the Los Angeles area.
And, when Endeavour passed overhead, the crowd cheered like it was the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, and it felt like you could reach out and touch the shuttle as it rode piggyback on the 747 transport.
Many in the crowd said it was an experience of a lifetime.

Sitting on the back of a modified 747 NASA's space shuttle Endeavour was able to take off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday morning after two weather delays. It's final destination is Souther California and the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
The Endeavour will fly over Sacramento and San Francisco on Friday morning before returning to Los Angeles to be displayed at the museum.
The process of mounting the shuttle onto the back of the jumbo jet is complex and time consuming, but this time lapse video speeds it up for you.
Star Wars fans, you're going like this trailer. Funny stuff.
