O shuttle, where art thou?

Wings, wings, and more wings

Last year, NASA's space shuttle fleet made its last forays into orbit. Now the remaining space planes are being moved to their final terrestrial resting places at a handful of museums in the United States. That group includes the shuttle Enterprise, which in 1977 made several flights in Earth's atmosphere as a proof of concept -- it never actually flew into space.

Today, the Enterprise made its final flight, headed to JFK Airport in New York, piggyback aboard NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. In June, it will ride a barge up the Hudson River to the city's Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. CNET photographer Sarah Tew captured the fly-by from a vantage point in Hoboken, N.J.
