The video in the article features Lockheed F-104 Starfighter Taxi, taking off a low pass, and an impressive vertical climb through the cloud layer!

The TF-104 takes off from the NASA Shuttle Landing Facility, from where the Starfighters usually operate for research and test purposes, as we often reported.

After a low pass over the 15,000-foot-long runway, the F-104 pulls up vertically and passes through the clouds to reach the clear skies above.

The video is captured by an action camera placed on the right wingtip fuel tank showing the Starfighter ripping through the skies.
