SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX/AP) - South Mississippians got a chance to see the Space shuttle Endeavour's final journey Wednesday morning.
NASA's youngest shuttle left Kennedy Space Center at sunrise on the first leg of its flight to California. It's bolted to the top of a jumbo jet.
Just before 8:30am, Endeavour could be seen in the skies over South Mississippi. The 747 carrying the shuttle made a low pass over Stennis Space Center in Hancock County to honor the workers who tested the shuttle engines. It also flew over the Michoud NASA facility in New Orleans.
Endeavour will make it as far as Houston on Wednesday, after flying low over NASA facilities along the way. The shuttle will arrive at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday. In mid-October, it will be transported down city streets to the California Science Center.

This is NASA's last ferry flight of a shuttle. Atlantis will remain at Kennedy for display. Discovery is already at the Smithsonian Institution. Endeavour flew 25 times in space before retiring last year.
