The space shuttle Endeavour and its Shuttle Carrier Aircraft made a low pass over Runway 8-26 at the Mojave Air and Space Port this morning at about 8:45 a.m.

I joined a large crowd that gathered next to the Mojave control tower to watch the final space shuttle flight. Folks working at XCOR Aerospace, Scaled Composites, The Space Ship Company and Masten Space Systems watched  Endeavour fly over the spaceport where they are building and testing next generation reusable space vehicles.

After making its pass over the runway, the shuttle and its carrier aircraft circled around and made a second pass over the spaceport at a higher altitude.
