<VIDEO> NEW YORK (AP) - An unusual flying object is zooming around New York City's airspace. It's the space shuttle Enterprise, riding on top of a modified jumbo jet.
 
The shuttle prototype was brought from Washington to New York on Friday morning. 
 
The heralded event included low-altitude flyovers over landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Intrepid on Manhattan's west side.
 
It's eventually going to make its new home in New York City at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
 
It won't move into its new home until June. It's scheduled to be open to the public in mid-July. 
 
In the meantime, the Enterprise will be kept at Kennedy Airport.
