The journey of Space Shuttle Enterprise to the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum in New York City completed its second leg on Sunday, as the retired — now on a barge — made its way from John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens to a shipyard in New Jersey.

After being transferred to a larger crane barge, Enterprise will make its final voyage on Tuesday Wednesday (delayed due to weather), when it is floated a few more miles to the Intrepid and lifted onto the deck.

The photos above are the work of several members of the NYCAviation Discussion Forum. Many thanks to Jason Rabinowitz, John Musolino, Manny Gonzalez, Eric Dunetz, Mark Szemberski and Wavefront (sorry we don’t know your real name!). Got some photos to add? Email us at news @ nycaviation.com.
