Space shuttle in Hollywood fly past

22 September 2012 Last updated at 09:04 BST

US space shuttle Endeavour has flown over California landmarks in a final air show before it heads for display in Los Angeles.

Piggy-backing on a modified Boeing 747 jet, the 75-ton ship flew past the California state capitol, Golden Gate Bridge and the Hollywood sign.

Endeavour replaced the shuttle Challenger, which was destroyed in an accident in 1986 that killed seven astronauts.
