There are also multi-view videos of the landings. Hope some of you get a chance to see them and comment.

Cozmosis22 Ab Fab!

Great job and a nice trip down memory lane.

Lunar Module 5Thanks — glad you liked it!
ilbassoI love the concept!

I wanted to pass along that I got nauseous about 45 seconds into watching your montage. I am one of those people who can't watch first-person video games or movies shot with with handheld cameras because of "Visually Induced Motion Sickness" (VIMS). It's from all the motion going on when you have multiple screens with a lot of swaying movement in them and the rapid cutting.

I know that YouTube has a way of reducing camera motion when you upload videos. I wonder if a similar technique could be applied to some of these shots to stabilize them a bit.

Lunar Module 5I didnt realise I would need to provide space sickness tablets with the videos!
Cliff Lentz STILL get goosebumps watching these! Great job!
Lunar Module 5Thanks! Glad you liked the videos.
Jay ChladekWow... very nice job synching all that footage up. Those black and white pad camera views were something I had never seen before. Where the heck did you find them?
cycleroadieMakes it hard to watch, I keep looking at different views and wondering what you missed in the other views while watching that view...

The B/W footage was replayed after Columbia was in orbit - they were captioned as engineering camera replays - hope that helps!

Well after that I thought this might work...

gliderpilotukExcellent job. You see things you'd never noticed before, like the significant (and dramatic) pitch-up on STS-3 post-landing. Did they land too fast and this was belated aerodynamic braking, or was it accidental?

The pitch-up is more dramatic, but given the videos are (more or less) synchronized to Weight-on-Wheels, look again at how "late" the gear deploy is -- this compilation does a good job of highlighting that for me. (The deploy timing is made a little more dramatic from chase plane video.)

The interaction between the autoland system, the changing winds, and that it was an early landing (even including the ALT series) contributed to the situation. The STS-3 mission report goes into it in more detail.

Lunar Module 5I think there was quite a lengthy discussion about the STS-3 pitch up on another STS-3 landing video I posted.
