NEW YORK (AP) — In a July 18 story about the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum's new Space Shuttle Pavilion, The Associated Press erroneously reported that, during tests that started in 1977, the Enterprise would separate from a 747 carrier aircraft after reaching an altitude of hundreds of thousands of feet. The separation occurred at an altitude of between 19,000 and 26,000 feet.
