Awesome Shuttle Launch Video

Here’s a new way to see a shuttle launch…from a plane.  One of the advantages of having lots of compact recording devices, when something really cool happens, someone can record and share it.

The is a pretty wide no fly zone around shuttle launches, so this plane was pretty far away.  The very end of the video look like the SRBs just burnt out.  Most of the smoke and flame you see on launch come from the SRBs as the shuttles main engines emit much less smoke and flame.

Oh, and watch it in 720p, full screen mode!
