Space shuttle Enterprise will fly past the Statue of Liberty and other landmarks Friday as it heads to its new home at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City.

The shuttle will be mounted atop a NASA 747 for the flight to John F. Kennedy International Airport. It will make passes over the Statue of Liberty, its new museum home and other landmarks before landing, according to NASA.

The space agency said it will put the shuttle on a barge in a few weeks and float it up the Hudson River to its final home.
