Yes, they flew from Florida to Houston to So. Calif. desert area. Then took off for a 'show me off' flight around California. Went north to the capitol (Sacramento) then over to San Francisco and a flight over the Golden Gate Bridge (honoring Star Trek movies - sort of) then down the coast line to LA where it will be taken to the museum over land to the museum. An internet friend of mine lives in Houston and she got to go to the landing field where it was refueling and had a picture taken 100 feet away from the airplane wing. The shuttle looked kinda dirty and burnt in a few places. Close up it was a marvel.
Can't put that pic up without her permission.
