Wheel Stop

The shuttle Endeavor completed its mission at 1:26 PM, California Time today, as it rolled to a stop at Edwards Air Force Base. Weather in Florida caused a rerouting to a California landing, where the sky was clear and the shuttle could be seen coming in from over 100 miles away by tracking cameras at Edwards. After a smooth 340-degree turn to bleed off velocity and line up on the runway, Endeavor touched down smooth as you please, a great piloting job by commander Chris Ferguson.
