Jumpy little fella:

Back in April I posted a note about the preparation for the Shuttle launch, and how two WB-57 chase planes were being modified to do HDTV footage of the launch. Here is the HDTV turret assembly mounted on the WB:

Here is the video from the STS-114 WAVE mission (WMV format). You be the judge - did it turn out well? Can you see why the NASA PR office has not used this as I thought they might?

Here is a photo taken with a hand-held camera from the cockpit of the WB-57 taken during a launch (not STS-114). You can barely see the plume from the SRBs (click on the image to get a much larger version, 1200x1600) :
