The Space Shuttle Endeavour has landed safely at the Los Angeles International Airport on Friday after a whirlwind aerial tour around California landmarks.
Attached to the back of a 747 jumbo jet, the pair touched down after a nearly five-hour flyover.
One of the crew members stuck an American flag out of the hatch of the jet.
The flyover took Endeavour over the state Capitol, Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood Sign and other icons en route to the Los Angeles airport, where the shuttle will be prepped for a slow-speed ground journey to its museum home next month.
NASA's shuttle fleet, which retired last year after three decades of flight, was assembled in Palmdale near Edwards Air Force Base where Endeavour took off on Friday morning for the aerial tour.
