The Super Guppy cargo plane, carrying part of the front section of the NASA wooden space shuttle mock-up called the FFT to the Museum of Flight, rattled Shoreline as it rumbled over the city on a long flight path to Boeing Field.

According to The Seattle Times

"Museum of Flight officials say the Guppy, on the final leg of its 3.5-day journey from Houston, is scheduled to pass over the museum about 10:40 a.m., then fly over downtown Seattle and the Space Needle about 10:45, cross over the east side of Lake Washington and fly over Everett’s Paine Field by about 10:50, then circle south along the Puget Sound shoreline to land at Boeing Field at 11. 
"The Super Guppy, a bubbleheaded, turboprop cargo plane, is expected to fly the Seattle circle at an altitude of 800 to 1,000 feet."
