"Endeavour" rolls down the road connecting the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF) #1 to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). She is on her way to collect her external tank and solid rocket boosters for an upcoming mission into space. The stop sign does not apply to her but the regular road traffic at the intersection. Her armed escort and pathfinders allow her smooth and uninterrupted travel. With the impending end of the STS program however this sight will be soon for the history books.

It's a real shame that this sight will indeed be no more pretty soon, but you can see why, Endeavour certainly doesn't look in good shape, and i'd imagine the other shuttles are in a similar condition.

Very nice view of the forward section here. The covered RCS units look very interesting as well.
