SpaceX Releases Falcon 9 First Stage Reentry Footage from Chase Plane

SpaceX has released a video from the July 14th launch of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying six ORBCOM satellites showing the first stage reentry from a chase plane.

According to SpaceX the rocket's first stage reentered Earth's atmosphere and soft landed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Towards the end of the video, the camera operator attempted to zoom in and unfortunately lost sight of the stage and was unable to capture the tip over into the water.
