LOS ANGELES (AP) — Space shuttle Endeavour has landed safely at the Los Angeles International Airport after a whirlwind aerial tour around California landmarks.

Strapped to the back of a 747 jumbo jet, Endeavour touched down Friday afternoon after a nearly 5-hour flyover.

Endeavour will retire at the California Science Center. Before its retirement, it took to the skies, looping over the state Capitol, Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood Sign and other icons.

Thousands turned out to see Endeavour soar one last time.

Endeavour flew 25 missions and spent 299 days in space.
