Just at the moment it’s beginning to go supersonic, aswell! It’s that fluffy white cloud that’s a _ring_ around roughly the junction of the first & second & stages that gives _that_ away.
Truly awe inspiring. All the participants of the mercury, Gemini and apollo missions from astronauts to assembly line staff were true heroes. Ruthless and single minded in their pursuit for exploration. Such a crying shame that politics and money was something that got in front of these pioneers. I will forever admire and revere the work and mindset these people created.
Edit – I feel I also need to add the people involved in the Bell X-1 project should be in this list too. Without the breaking of Mach 1 thus proving the impossible is possible with determination and skill we would never have got a piece of hardware into orbit.
god that is the most american picture ever
