Although your visit may have been enjoyable you will find that the Enterprise was only a non-flying version if the shuttle.It was only named as such to favour "trekkies"

Although it is true that Enterprise did not go into space, it was used for glide testing by some of the first shuttle crews so technically *did* fly :-)

Cheers!

I thought the Supermarine Scimitar the FAA museum swapped for the F4S now at East Fortune was on Intrpid?

Yes, you're right. it was there at one time. When the museum got the Space Shuttle Enterprise in 2012, they removed three aircraft to make room. The Scimitar, Skyknight and MiG-15 were sent up river to the Empire State Aerosciences Museum.

All - Many thanks for the follow up thoughts and background information for which I was unsighted. The visit to Intrepid was well worthwhile and deserved more time than I had on the day as we returned to the UK that afternoon.

Regards,

Andy
