Endeavour's Last Flight - Disneyland, California USA

 This is the top level of the parking structure at Disneyland in Anaheim, California USA
A crowd is gathering to witness and photograph the last flight for Endeavour as she passes over the park at about 12:15 p.m., Friday, September 21, 2012

 Here she comes with two chase planes following!
The crowd cheers on the carpark rooftop as well as throughout the Disneyland park.

She is getting closer!

 ...and, closer

 The excitement mounts!
What an incredible sight!

 WOW!  Right over the top of the parking structure!
I could almost tickle the belly of the 747!
Tears were rolling down peoples' faces, including mine!
She was flying at 1500' at about 250 miles per hour.
It seemed like she floated past us with barely any noise.

 There she goes towards the coast.
Will she return for another flyover?

 We hoped...

 Please come back!

We keep hoping...

But, no...she turns and heads towards Los Angeles to land at LAX.
I waited about 4 hours for a minute or two of pure joy!
It was worth it!

Hi. This is Kenkichi. I sent you an email a few days ago, but it was rejected somehow. How can I reach you?
