The Space Shuttle Enterprise was hoisted aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid in New York City Wednesday. It will be on display at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

With Enterprise now sitting on its flight deck, the Intrepid will begin work raising a climate-controlled, steel and fabric shelter over the shuttle, to protect it while its on display.

The Intrepid’s new “Space Shuttle Pavilion” is set to open to the public on July 19, kicking off a 3-day “SpaceFest” at the museum.
