An aerial video crew observed the October 28, 2009 Ares I-X test flight from
a Cessna Skymaster aircraft positioned approx. 10 nautical miles away from
the vehicle at an altitude of 12,000 feet. The videographer used a
gyro-stabilized high-definition camera system mounted to the outside of
the aircraft to capture this spectacular footage which provides extremely
valuable engineering data, and imagery of the recovery sequence in rarely-seen detail.

Ares I-X is the first flight test of the Constellation Program and provides
NASA an early opportunity to gather critical data during vehicle ascent and
during booster deceleration and recovery.
