Orbiter Enterprise arrives in NYC

I had a little time this morning to go to the waterfront in Hoboken for the re-scheduled flyby... only had my cheesy point'n'shoot with me, but it was great just to be there.
They made two passes, both over the west bank, not the middle of the river. Messed up my photo plans, but it was still way awesome!!

I saw it through "street corridor" in the city. Was majestic.

From that angle it seems like a Discovery channel documentary of how airplanes mate in the wild.

Well you see, when a male plane and a female plane love each other very much...



....and then several years later, a baby capsule is born:
