Right now, NASA is streaming live coverage of a crashing a Cessna from 100 feet in the air.

The crash is part of a NASA’s Search and Rescue Mission Office’s test of a “severe but survivable plane accident.”

The crash-test is being conducted at the Langley Research Center in Virginia, where the NASA research team has “equipped the vintage 1974 airplane with five ELTs, two crash test dummies, cameras and data-collecting sensors,” according to their statement.

The emergency locator transmitters (ELTs) are being tested in event of a crash to see just how well these gadgets can be improved upon.

Coverage is airing now, between 1 and 2 p.m. ET (or 10-11 PT). Watch it all unfold at NASA TV and below:
