Date: July 17, 2006
Duration: 4 min 37 sec
The best view of Discovery's homecoming is provided from onboard the space shuttle. A camera mounted in the front window gives a true pilot's point-of-view as Discovery makes a 240-degree left-overhead turn to align with the runway. But the turn happens above the clouds. The shuttle finally punches through the cloud cover in the final moments before landing. This movie, which includes the live landing audio, ends when the video signal stopped.
