Space Shuttle Enterprise Flies Over Long Beach

Local photographers capture Friday’s fly over of the NASA shuttle.

Local Long Beach photographers took their cameras to the sky during Friday morning's fly over of the NASA Space Shuttle Enterprise.

The shuttle was traveling from Dulles International Airport to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport in order to be put on display at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City.

Attached to a specially outfitted Boeing 747 aircraft, Enterprise took an aerial tour of the tri-state area before making the historic landing.

Check out the album above to see photographs of the impressive event.

And all those billions of dollars spent and astronauts lives lost just to fly to the moon and then walk around on it...... for what? How has that improved our lives? They invented Velcro? Who would want to go the moon anyway? Three days of flying coach with no meals served? And they would charge extra for checked bags, so we have to pack light? Then when we finally land there, the air stinks. There is none. I'd rather vacation in LA and deal with a little smog and heavy traffic. Theres no gravity, so we'd all be prancing around like a bunch of fairies who are light in their loafers. No beach, boardwalk, bars or restaurants up there. So whats a guy to do all day? Cant even find any good Chinese take out on the moon. Wait. I take that back. If China ever lands a manned spaceship up there, the first thing theyll do is open up a restaurant called New Moon Kitchen.

A man's reach must exceed his grasp, else what's a heaven for? (I'm sure the view from under a rock is nice too.)

Then let NASA piss away YOUR money to reach for the stars. Not mine. I want the government to spend my money fixing roads, building bridges, feeding the poor, and giving rebates to first time home buyers.

You're such a tool.
