The video is and hour and 19 minutes, but the landing occurs around 32 minutes in, the rest is crew egress and safe-ing the vehicle.

It never occurred to me before that the tower would not say "cleared to land" (something all pilots want to ensure they have prior to landing), but it would be an irrelevant call anyway .... they are going to land whether you clear them or not!

JBoeGreat video. I did notice the green CRTs. By the way, when did they get upgraded?
daboltonLooks like at just past 16:00, the pilot raises his seat. I didnt realize they were power adjustable seats.

garymilgromWhat is the dark object that appears to block their view directly ahead?
OV-105STS-109 was the first flight of Columbia with the glass cockpit.

I believe those are checklists taped (velcro'd?) to the windscreen frame. The seats are widely separated so the position of the list does not obscure their FOV. Note the location of the HUD assembly relative to the list/obstruction.
daboltonBob Cabana is such a cool character. Not any sense of fear or apprehension. Very much like Neil Armstrong.
