The Space Shuttle Endeavour flew over Tucson on its journey to California, Thursday, where it will be placed in a museum and put on permanent display.

The flyover, which was requested by Mark Kelly, gave NASA a chance to honor his wife, Gabrielle Giffords, and her legacy as a longtime advocate for American human spaceflight.
