      Big day here in New York City where Space Shuttle Enterprise will hitch a ride over some very iconic parts of the city on the back of a 747. The NASA shuttle will eventually be placed at a new home being built at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum complex on the USS Intrepid in the Hudson River. A flyover is expected between 9:30 and 11:30 so we'll hopefully have that for our air. We also have a behind-the-scenes piece Jenna Lee did showing where the shuttle will end up.
