Airplane Footage of Space Shuttle Discovery's Final Launch

On February 24, 2011, Space Shuttle Discovery launched into space on what would be its final mission before NASA’s space shuttle program came to an end. NASA’s program had been the most successful space travel program in history, and Discovery had traveled 143 million miles and carried 246 crewmembers since its first flight in 1984. Luckily, a passenger aboard a nearby airplane shot cell phone footage of this amazing view of Discovery’s launch, giving the world one of their final looks at one of mankind’s greatest inventions in-flight, a majestic sight that future generations will never see live again.
