Space Shuttle Take-off Filmed From Airliner

Holy smokes!

I saw one of the early shuttle take-offs, in 1982 or '83, in Titusville, Florida (maybe this one). Even from a mile away, which is as close as they allowed us, it was pretty spectacular. I got tons of photographs of a big blue sky...with a tiny orange dot in the center of it, trailing smoke.

I could have done without the camera operator saying "Holy shit! Oh my god! Look how fast it's going!" every ten or so seconds but it was an amazing shot nonetheless.

Yeah. Like some of my videos.
