Anyone see some Endeavor action?

I caught the landing at LAX on an 800mm amongst a crazy crowd. Some caps:

I missed a low flyover by one minute at work, but saw it return and line up in the LAX flightpath.

I could see it from my office building, but it was pretty far away. It apparently flew right over my wife's school and the kids went wild. I'm glad they got to see it so close.

I didn't see it, but living in SoCal you can't turn on any station without seeing it.

Yeah, I saw it from Santa Ana during my work. One guy was pointing his iPhone to sky and I was curious and checked outside - "oh, shit!" and then I struggled to get my phone out but I was too late. It was amazing view. I know it's no big deal to other people, but it is to me.

Re: Anyone see some Endeavor action?

I was driving through Hollywood and had forgotten what day it was until I finally understood why there were so many people standing on rooftops facing north. I parked at the Target/Best Buy and watched it from the second story landing by the Target entrance with about 50 other people. Pretty cool to see it and also to see that many people waiting outside to see it fly by.

Re: Anyone see some Endeavor action?

I caught it from a distance. A bunch of folks who work in our Building went to the 9th floor of our parking structure and caught it as it flew over Universal Studios a couple times.

I had lots of friends who wen to Disneyland to view it.

Nice. I heard it as it was approaching the Golden Gate Bridge but took too long to figure out what it was and look out to see it, so I missed it.

I caught it in Glendale. It did a wicked turn over a nearby school then flew off in another direction.

Somehow I missed that this was going on or I guess I would have gone outside to watch.

A couple other favorites (not taken by me)

At USC:



The stills in my original post are actually screengrabs from video I took, which I'll cut together and share when I have the time to attend to it.

It flew right over my house about 90 seconds after it took off from Edwards.

Re: Anyone see some Endeavor action?

Envious of y'all. I guess I'm still bitter about all the politics resulting in the shuttles going to pay-for sites on the coasts where the majority of folks in flyover country won't get to see 'em.

But the AF Museum in Dayton got a trainer. Woo hoo!

Re: Anyone see some Endeavor action?

My friend got some great pictures of the first LAX flyby and the landing. He said he scouted for a good location for 2 weeks and pretty much camped out at the spot the day before. It did fly by Culver City twice so I did get to see it out of the office windows.
