Discovery Launch As Seen From a Passenger Flight [Video]
Feb 26th, 2011, 4:00 pm
Space Shuttle Discovery launched for its final flight a couple of days ago and gave us some pretty views. Luckily, a flight from Orlando, Florida happened to pass by the Kennedy Space Center around the time of he launch, and a quick-thinking passenger on the plane, YouTube user NeilMonday, was able to record the Discovery launch from his passenger plane’s window, providing viewers with an angle of shuttle launches that we rarely get to see.
Also, at about 0:19 into the video, if you listen closely enough, you can hear (who is presumably) the pilot being funny over the plane’s intercom.
