Imagery has come down from Mars capturing a recent flight in which the rotorcraft flew farther and faster than ever before.

The Ingenuity Mars Helicopter's black-and-white navigation camera has provided dramatic video of its record-breaking 25th flight, which took place on April 18.

Covering a distance of 2,310 feet (704 meters) at a speed of 12 mph (5.5 meters per second), it was the Red Planet rotorcraft's longest and fastest flight to date.

(Ingenuity is currently preparing for its 29th flight.)

Footage of the 161.3-second flight was sped up approximately five times.

In the video, Ingenuity first reaches an altitude of 33 feet (10 meters).

The helicopter then moves southwest and accelerates to 12 mph (5.5 meters per second) in less than three seconds.

Ingenuity flies over a group of sand ripples and then by several rock fields.

Finally, the helicopter finds a landing spot when relatively flat terrain appears below.

Ingenuity became the first aircraft in history to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet on April 19, 2021, from Wright Brothers Field in Jezero Crater, Mars.
