Space Shuttle Endeavour Flies Over Burlingame

Residents gathered for the historic event at Burlingame's Bayfront Trail.

Burlingame residents crowded the Bayfront Trail this morning in anticipation of glimpsing the Space Shuttle Endeavour on its farewell tour flyover.

Endeavour, strapped securely to NASA’s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, finally made an appearance around 10:20 a.m. People shared binoculars, snapped photos and cheered from the trail as the shuttle flew across the Bay towards Burlingame and down the Peninsula.

“Think of where it’s been—so cool,” said one spectator.

People of all ages gathered together, making phone calls and using radios to track the flight’s progression before its arrival over Burlingame.

The shuttle is on the last leg of its farewell tour, which began at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and will end at the Los Angeles International Airport.

In the Bay Area, the flight began over the Golden Gate Bridge before roughly following the Embarcadero in San Francisco and Highway 101 down the Peninsula. It had planned appearances over the NASA Ames Center in Mountain View, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Vanderberg Air Force Base.
