NEW YORK (AP) -- Look! Up in the sky! It's a ... space shuttle?
An unusual flying object is scheduled to arrive in the city's airspace Friday. The space shuttle Enterprise will be riding on top of a modified jumbo jet.
The shuttle prototype is going to make its new home in New York City at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
Its journey to the city is planned to include low-altitude flyovers over parts of the city and landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Intrepid on Manhattan's west side.
It won't arrive at its new home just yet, though. That won't happen until June. It's scheduled to be open to the public in mid-July.
In the meantime, the Enterprise will be kept at Kennedy Airport.
