Keet got on a C-130 cargo plane to travel from Sea World San Antonio to the San Diego theme park Monday morning.

After landing, the three thousand pound whale was then transferred from the airport on the back of a large flat-bed semi-truck.

It took about two hours to drive slowly to Sea World then transfer him to a large tank.

In the whale's 19 years, he's lived in San Antonio, San Diego and Aurora, Ohio.
