LOS ANGELES - What do traffic collisions and a space shuttle flight have in common? Hopefully nothing. We hope you join in our excitement as the space shuttle Endeavour arrives home in Los Angeles, around noon on Friday September 21, 2012, making a series of low-level flyovers.
Given the magnitude of the spectacle, Los Angeles Firefighters remind those wanting to get a glimpse of the shuttle to do so from a safe spot. The LAFD responds to approximately 88 traffic collisions a day, and thus encourages those behind-the-wheel to keep their eyes on the road, and not try to take in the show simultaneously, especially taking and sharing a photo while driving. For those looking to capture an image of this special event, please view the map below to find a popular landmark to catch a peek.
