Enterprise move to Intrepid delayed
NEW YORK (WABC) -- The planned final leg of the journey of Space Shuttle Enterprise to its new home at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum has been postponed due to inclement weather.
The planned final leg of the journey of Space Shuttle Enterprise to its new home at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum has been postponed due to inclement weather.
The weather is delaying the prep work necessary to ferry and crane the shuttle to its final destination, officials said.
A new moving date has been tentatively set for Wednesday.
Enterprise will remain at Weeks Marine in New Jersey until it is brought up the Hudson River and craned onto the Intrepid.
The shuttle left Kennedy Airport Sunday morning on a barge and was towed past thousands of spectators to Jersey City. The shuttle had been at JFK since it flew from Washington atop a 747 jet earlier this spring.
A spokeswoman for the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum says the shuttle's wingtip sustained light cosmetic damage during the trip when a gust of wind caused it to graze a wood piling. No other damage was reported.
