Video: Space Shuttle Endeavour flies over Santa Monica and lands at LAX

This video is pretty cool! It was sent to us by Scott Herbert, son of KCRW engineer, Steve Herbert. He got to watch the Shuttle land at LAX from his nearby office building. News footage aside, this is the best phone-captured video we’ve seen so far!

But as it turns out, Scott has a brother named Samuel who shot this incredible video of the shuttle landing.

And here’s what the shuttle looked like from the roof of the parking structure at Santa Monica College, where the KCRW offices are. KCRW engineer and father of the aforementioned videographers, Steve Herbert, grabbed these two shots of the flyover.

And keeping it all in the KCRW family, Anil Dewan, KCRW’s Director if Interactive, got these lovely photos of the shuttle flying by the Santa Monica Pier.
