Here in the U.S. we don't normally think of California as a "flyover state,"* but it was yesterday.
Check out the L.A. Times' wonderful set of documentary pictures of the sentimental and celebratory final flight of the Space Shuttle.
(I found the set taken as a whole to be better than any one picture. My favorite if I had to pick one would be Bob Chamberlin's shot of the Shuttle past the smokestacks of the Queen Mary.)
(Thanks to John Camp)
*A derogatory term for the interior states used by people on both coasts, meaning that all you ever do is fly over them when going from one coast to the other.
