Airline Passengers Capture Astounding Footage Of SpaceX Launch — From The Sky!

View of a SpaceX rocket, Flacon 9, taking off in Florida. This is from the perspective of someone on an airplane.

If you’ve ever gotten a window seat on an airplane then you know the sights below you can be absolutely breathtaking. There’s the beautiful clouds and sunsets, but there’s also city lights and eye-catching architecture. What most people won’t catch on a flight, however, is the sight of a SpaceX rocket launching into space. But that’s exactly what happened to passengers flying past Cape Canaveral in Florida!

Nelito, who also goes by chefpinkpr on TikTok, shares footage of the launch. He’s a flight attendant, but even he has never witnessed such an incredible moment while in the air. In the video, it’s clear that the event taking place far below the plane captures the attention of just about everyone nearby.

“What are the chances of this?” someone says in the video. “That was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”

It’s crazy to watch the rocket ascend into space. One second, it’s below the plane. Then, before you know it, the rocket has elevated far above the commercial jet, no doubt even father away than it seems.
