WEBSTER —The Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft flew into Ellington Field for an air show. When it leaves today it will roll out in pieces.

The Shuttle Carrier will become the newest exhibit at Space Center Houston once it rolls down Highway 3 and NASA Parkway in a 1,000-foot convoy. It’s a project that began last year when the space center floated the idea of putting the 318,000-pound aircraft on display, said Jack Moore, spokesperson for Space Center Houston.
