Watching a space shuttle take off is a pretty amazing experience. Seeing it take to the sky from an airliner is that much better. This is an amateur video of the Space Shuttle Discovery taking off for the last time. Some readers on pin-pointed the flight as a JetBlue flight from Orlando, FL to Richmond, VA.

That’s awesome…

Cool. It reminds me of a night launch I saw once from Vandenburg AFB on an Alaska flight from Seattle to San Diego. We were directly abeam VAFB (can’t say how far away — maybe 50 miles) in clear weather so the view couldn’t have been better.
