NASA's Mystery Jet Flights Over Los Angeles

NASA Aircraft To Fly Over Los Angeles Area August 25

"NASA, in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration, will conduct training and photographic flights over the Los Angeles area on Saturday, Aug. 25. Two NASA jets, a T-38 and an F-18, will fly approximately 1,500 feet above Los Angeles starting at 8 a.m. PDT. If delayed by weather or other circumstances, the jets will fly at 12:30 p.m. These flights are intended to capture photographic imagery."

Endeavour Heads for L.A.

"Endeavour, which will be transported on top of NASA's Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA), is expected to arrive at LAX mid-day of September 20. The target date is flexible, pending weather conditions at Kennedy Space Center, along the flight path and in Los Angeles."

Keith's note: Gee, I wonder why NASA will be flying T-38s and an F-18 over Los Angeles? Do you think this has something to do with the fact that Space Shuttle Endeavour is going to arrive in Los Angeles on 20 September? Why NASA and/or FAA can't be honest and just admit why they are doing these flyovers is just goofy. As if no one can figure it out.
