Space Center Houston sets date for NASA shuttle carrier's move to new home
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; the Boeing 747 jumbo jet that ferried dozens of space shuttles from landing sites in California and New Mexico back to Florida will be moving from its current spot in a remote part of Ellington Field to its new home just outside the front doors of Space Center Houston.
According to Space Center Houston's Facebook page, the move will begin on the night of April 28 and continue the next evening to sidestep any major traffic concerns for Clear Lake residents. Nine large plane pieces will be moved over two nights.
