Pretty cool go pro footage - riding a Space Shuttle booster tank.

The 400 second ride up and back on a shuttle booster tank

Wow! That was amazing! I can't believe someone was able to hold on the whole time to get such great footage!

Do you think they used the regular adhesive mounts, or the surf board mounts? Cuz that is what I want on my boat!

Pretty cool when they broke the sound barrier at about 700 mph - you can see the shock wave and cloud formed by it

Those boosters would have been better attached if they had used pins and clips.
