Today was the last time a Space Shuttle will ever fly. Endeavour (OV-105) took a ride on the back of one of NASA's 747 aircraft to Los Angeles where she will become a museum exhibit. On the way, she passed over San Francisco. I skipped work and waited on Treasure Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay to take some photos. (Click to embiggen.)
