Space Shuttle Atlantis: STS-115

This video from the September 2006 mission STS-115 shows Atlantis performing a back flip (rotational pitch manoeuvre) before docking with the International Space Station (ISS).

Launch was delayed due to a lightning strike on the launch pad but no damaged was incurred. The mission delivered the P3/P4 truss to the International Space Station (ISS).
