Read that 400 trees are having to be cut down in order to get it down the streets.

I'd love to see it make its way down though, always enjoy going seeing different shuttles and what not in the museums.

The shuttle is scheduled to reach Los Angeles airspace about 10:30 a.m., and is expected to circle the Southland at least once before touching down at Los Angeles International Airport about an hour later.
