This is Craig Batteas. He flies the NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier aircraft, and tomorrow morning he will fly his plane, with the Endeavour space shuttle strapped to its back, over San Francisco. And as you can see, he really wishes he worked for BASA, Bernal’s very own space agency.
The shuttle will fly over San Francisco tomorrow; I’ve seen the flight plan, and it looks like Crissy Field and Treasure Island will be prime viewing spots. @KarltheFog permitting, the shuttle should be visible from Bernal Hill.
Timing-wise, it looks like the overflight will happen between 9 or 10 am, but there may be a 1 hour delay. Check the @bernalwood Twitter account tomorrow morning for updates.
Your Bernalwood Editor saw Endeavour arrive here at Edwards AFB a few hours ago. Here’s what it looked like:
