No, you are not crazy; Yes, that was a space shuttle
Around 10:50 AM today, many students noticed an aircraft ferrying a space shuttle flying by campus, and then wondered if finals stress was inducing hallucinations.It turns out that the space shuttle Enterprise, which has been on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum since 2003, is actually being carried atop a larger jumbo jet to New York City today. The Enterprise will be on display at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in Manhattan starting this June.
The museum encouraged people to visit the museum this morning to view the low flyover. The shuttle will then be taken to JFK airport for a private welcoming ceremony. Some quick trivia: Enterprise never made it to space, but it was the first shuttle that NASA designed, and the museum exhibit will feature interactive fun, where vistors can step into the shuttle.
