An interview with Shuttle Carrier Aircraft crew member Jim Johnston. Jim works for the FAA in National Tactical Security and Special Operations, and will be in charge of coordinating between NASA and various FAA air traffic control facilities during Endeavour's flight to California. He maps out the flyover routes, the en-route segments, and will handle any coordination issues between the air traffic system and the SCA crew, and he gave me a few minutes of his time to discuss his historic upcoming flight.
Weather permitting, Endeavour will take to the skies on her final flight shortly after 7:00 a.m. EDT Tuesday morning, conducting a low flyover up and down Florida's Space Coast and giving residents a final chance to say goodbye to the orbiter they watched launched on 25 missions over nearly 20 years. Endeavour will then head west towards California, with making numerous low-flyovers and stops along the way.
