Video: Space Shuttle Enterprise detached from 747 carrier aircraft

Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when you're putting an old friend to rest. We've seen photos of the Enterprise flying into New York City for its final rest at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and now there's a time-lapse video of it getting detached from the giant Boeing 747 Carrier Aircraft.

If you've ever wondered how the take a shuttle off an airplane's back, watch this. IIf you want to know how they get the shuttle on the plane, watch the video in reverse.

So long Enterprise, we'll see you at the museum!
