(Video) amazing end-to-end aerial footage of a missile test

Video by Norway's Kongsberg of a flight test of its Naval Strike Missile (NSM), basis of teh Joint Strike Missile under development for the F-35 JSF. Here the fire-and-forget missile is launched from land at the Pt Mugu, Calif., test range and is filmed by a chase aircraft as sea-slims a few feet above the Pacific, flying over an island to acquire and attack a target ship on the otther side.

Maybe you need to take a closer look. At about 0:47 if you freeze the frame, you can see it's a direct hit. Furthermore, looking closely at the sunken ship (I assume it's an old tanker that was purposely sunk there for target practice or whatever), you can see a yellow cable that leads down the length of the ship. It goes directly to the point of impact. Coincidence? I think not. I bet they had sensors there to pick up the impact. It looks like about as direct a hit as you could possibly expect to me.

Chip, it's a test/development round. That one was flying at a fairly high level...
