Default Orion Abort Test Footage

Here’s a link to the Orion Launch Abort System test this morning. Looked nominal.

Little Joe III? If so, I wish it would have had fins!

Yes, while I guess the booster design is certainly functional, it lacks the rocket 'attractiveness' of the Little Joe I or II vehicles. I can't say that I'd have any desire to model this Orion abort test vehicle at all.

Even with fins, the aesthetics of the curved capsule and solid shaft escape system aren't something I care for.
