The Spectacular Last Flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour In Ultra-HD Video

Famed cinematographer and Gizmodo friend, Vincent Laforet, went to Los Angeles International Airport to capture the last flight of space shuttle Endeavour using a RED Epic camera at 5K resolution with Canon 800mm 5.6 lens in slow motion—-96 frames per second.

The best shot was his test before Endeavour arrived, because the increasing heat caused optical waves in his final video above, as he explains in his blog.

Here's a shot of his gear:
