Awesome. Sure wish the drone was half as the distance.

There may be more videos coming. I'd guess there was a fairly stringent `no-fly' zone around the landing pad.

LZ-1 is under USAF jurisdiction with SpaceX leasing it, and leans more towards a requirement than a suggestion.

Imagine what it is going to be like when SpaceX begins using its huge Falcon Heavy (first test is later this year).

It has 3 boosters that will be landing independently in the same time frame on each launch!

Watch this flight animation:

I am waiting for that one, it should a spectacular sight to see 3 first stages come down.

I feel like back in the 60s. Space-x doing its stuff, than Boeing will come on, and than NASA with its monster candle.

You just have to love it.
