A ceremony was held aboard the aircraft carrier, now a museum on Manhattan’s West Side.
The new pavilion for NASA’s retired shuttle was unveiled at a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday morning.
In College Point, Queens, the annual parade stepped off Sunday afternoon. The parade featured about 1,000 participants.
Things kicked off Saturday, when F-16D fighter jets flew in formation over Yankee Stadium before their game against the Boston Red Sox.
On Sunday around 1 p.m., the F-16Ds will fly over the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in conjunction with the Opening Ceremony for Air Force Week NYC.
The shuttle left Jersey City on a barge Wednesday and began traveling up the Hudson River. It passed by the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center site and is scheduled to be lifted onto the flight deck of the Intrepid shortly.
