As per reports, it has been revealed that bad weather has delayed the arrival of the shuttle prototype in New York. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said that they have postponed their plans to send the Enterprise at Kennedy International Airport.
A NASA spokesman, Michael Curie, said that they are going to have a meeting where weather forecast will be discussed and accordingly it will be decided, when they can send the Enterprise to New York City. Curie further affirmed that they are expecting to send the Enterprise on the next day.
The prototype will be fitted on the back of a specially modified Boeing 747, and it will fly the prototype to the New York's Kennedy International Airport. The Enterprise has been on display for many years at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s satellite site in Virginia.
It is only now that it is going to be travelled to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in Manhattan. Susan Marenoff-Zausner, who is the President of the Intrepid museum, was of the view that he is quite sure that the New York residents are quite excited to have the Enterprise. He would like to assure people that the shuttle will soon be in the city.
In addition, it has been found that the Enterprise is not going to stay in the city forever. It will be there till June and then again, it will be loaded on a barge and will be taken to the Intrepid.
Weather experts were of the view that the storm that delayed the journey of the Enterprise was not less than a hurricane. The storm got three inches of rain with 5 to 9 inches of snow. It led to cancellation of the journey.
