Promoter urges NASA to fly space shuttle over his air show

Rather than schedule the Cocoa Beach Air Show during its usual time slot in late October, he moved the event to mid-September in hopes that the timing would coincide with the transfer of shuttle Endeavour from Kennedy Space Center to a Los Angeles museum.

NASA is arguing that it would cost too much money to alter the schedule by a couple of days so that there could be a flyover of the shuttle at the air show. I find this hard to believe unless they are doing it wrong.
