Flying from Orlando, Florida, a passenger from in an airplane had the rare opportunity to be able to watch Discovery’s final launch as it embarks on STS-133.
Passengers on the right side of a jet aircraft had a view of the launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery on its final launch on February 24, 2011.
The pilot gets on the intercom and recommends passengers on the left side of the aircraft go to the right side of the aircraft to view the launch.
The videographer captures the shuttle very early in the launch, and perhaps was aware and ready to capture the video of the launch.
There was joking on the intercom from the cockpit or a flight attendant about the flight being late, which made possible the viewing of the space shuttle launch.
