I remember this just like it was yesterday.
 
Space Shuttle Enterprise - ALT- 1 (Complete Free Flight)

August 12th 1977 - Onboard are astronauts Fred Haise and Gordon Fullerton.

Here is the first free flight of Space Shuttle Enterprise with the NASA commentary added. I have been searching for the audio of this test flight for 30 odd years and, at last, here it is. It has been very satisfying to finally put this all together. Another "space first" for me. For those of you who have always wanted to see it like this (ie with no TV commentators), I hope you enjoy the 10 minutes or so that will whisk you back to a simpler, but perhaps , what seemed a more futuristic age...

Video starts 2 minutes before pushover and lasts through wheels stop.

The "audio find" was on a cassette tape and is, I believe, one of the tapes JSC media department used to provide free on receipt of a blank cassette tape back in the 70s and 80s. Some of the audio seems "clipped" - but to those that remember, that was the way these types of tapes were recorded - the term used was "voxed" - which we all believed at the time meant some of the audio sounds like on this audio...slightly clipped, as if it was a voice activated recording.

Video/photos/patches and audio are courtesy NASA.

Depend on Seton Medical Center Harker Heights Heart Team when moments matter the most. That’s the message Rare MEDIA Well Done was tasked to deliver for this outstanding client. What can we do for you?

Did you miss today's SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch carrying a Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station? Want to see it again? Watch it now.

The Dragon spacecraft is on its own in orbit and operating with its arrays deployed as planned. Next stop, the space station where astronauts will use the station’s 57.7-foot robotic arm to reach out and capture it as they operate from the station’s cupola. Arrival is set for Friday at 7 a.m. EDT.

Third time's the charm!
 
Just Read the Instructions now on location in the Atlantic in advance of tomorrow's launch, targeted for 4:33pm ET. Since our last landing attempt, the drone ship has been upgraded to tolerate more powerful ocean swells, however weather at the landing site is looking significantly better this time.
 
After Dragon and Falcon 9’s second stage are on their way to orbit, the first stage will execute a controlled reentry through Earth’s atmosphere, targeting touchdown on an autonomous spaceport drone ship approximately nine minutes after launch.

Seton Medical Center in Harker Heights, Texas was looking to market the Women’s Center and Rare MEDIA Well Done was pleased to add our creative input into the mix. We decided to tell the hospital’s story through the eyes of children born there. What can we do for you?

Story
Tagline
I live in Waco, Texas. I write, shoot and edit local television commercials.
Introduction
From the moment I entered a television studio in the Fall of 1982, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life.  It's not always a profitable career, but the creative possiblities that I find every day writing, shooting and editing commercials are endlessly enjoyable.
