LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Space shuttle Endeavour’s expected arrival at Los Angeles International Airport has been delayed by one day due to unfavorable weather conditions.
KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports the shuttle was initially scheduled to arrive at LAX on Thursday, but NASA has postponed Endeavour’s departure from Kennedy Space Center to its shuttle aircraft carrier in Houston.
Officials say weather conditions are favorable Wednesday for the flight path between Kennedy and Houston.
The shuttle’s arrival at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base is now set for Thursday morning.
The shuttle is then scheduled to land at LAX between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Friday.
NASA officials are expected to hold another weather briefing at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
The El Segundo Police Department has designated the 300 to 600 blocks of E. Imperial Avenue as public viewing space to watch Endeavour land at LAX.
