Meanwhile, Space Shuttle Atlantis moves into the VAB (Vehicle Assembly Building) for temporary storage until Endeavour moves out of the only avaible OPF (Orbitor Processing Facility), OPF-2, in September. Endeavour is scheduled to depart Kennedy Space Center aboard the specially modified 747 for the final time on September 20th, and will land September 21st in Los Angeles. Atlantis will then move into the OPF to complete Transition and Retirement procedures and will roll to the Kennedy Space Center on November 2nd.
This is Atlantis moving out of OPF-1, the final time a Space Shuttle will be in OPF-1.
