    There are some interesting numbers overlaid on the video that give a close
    approximation of the launch ship location.
    
    It appears to be a Head Up Display for the camera-carrying aircraft. At the
    moment of launch:
    Altitude - 26,463 feet,
    Ground Speed - 263 knots,
    Heading - 152 degrees,
    Latitude - 23 deg 35.3 min North,
    Longitude - 163 deg 06.3 min West.
    
    The clock on the video shows ignition at 03:26:47 UTC.
