HOUSTON (AP) — Space shuttle Endeavour is flying over Houston as it prepares to land for a one-day stop on its trek west to retirement in a California museum.

The shuttle, atop a modified jumbo jet, was on its way Wednesday morning to a runway near NASA’s Johnson Space Center at Ellington Field, where hundreds of people were gathered awaiting its arrival.

It’s being described as a bittersweet moment because Endeavor is not staying at the home of NASA’s Mission Control. Instead, Houston got a full-sized shuttle replica.

Bad weather this week delayed Endeavour’s trip and will cut its time in Houston by a day.

Endeavour departed Kennedy Space Center in Florida earlier Wednesday after a two-day weather delay. It will stay in Houston until Thursday morning.
