I love watching the chute deployment on this video. It's great to watch the drogue chute pull off the deployment bag and then see the mains open very slowly.

IIRC it landed a bit closer to the shore than they anticipated but ended up being ok.

One of the guys at my club did a scale LPR cluster of the Orion Launch Abort System. It was very cool:
