Default FAILURE: Arianespace VEGA VV15 - FalconEye1
by Urwumpe 07-11-2019, 08:59 AM

Strange that nobody posted it yet.

The anomaly started right after staging and second stage ignition.

The amusing anomaly: The commenter of the live stream going on like on a usual launch despite the trajectory plot already curving far below the planned trajectory and eventually ending in a cross for loss of telemetry.

Looks like somebody was not in the loop.

"The launcher trajectory of temporarily deviated."

Oh, I'm sure it will all be fine!

Don't we all have a little low early in the morning?

Looks like the second stage failed to ignite. In the video they cut away to the animation after MECO but there was no visual indication of 2nd stage ignition. The second stage is a solid motor, is it not?
