Last in a Lifetime Event: Space Shuttle Endeavor flies by Alameda

Jack Boeger

I was out there 45 minutes early to catch the shuttle fly over the East Bay, but luckily picked a pretty good spot on the Alameda-BFI bridge.

There was a group of school children there first but unfortunately their time ran out before it arrived. By the time it did show up at 10:10... I was the only one on the bridge.

I first spotted it looking east towards the Oakland Coliseum as it was flying southwest from Sacramento. It then pulled a long U-turn and practically flew over OAK and Harbor Bay Island. I lost site of it as it kept heading north over Alameda.
