Enterprise overhead

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.
