Video from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, showing the scaffolding being released from around the ExoMars 2016 spacecraft composite, which is mounted with the Breeze upper stage on the conical launch vehicle adapter, and the spacecraft being tilted into the horizontal position ready to be enclosed inside the launcher fairing.
The Trace Gas Orbiter and the Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing demonstrator module can be seen throughout (Schiaparelli is positioned at the top of the spacecraft ‘stack’, as seen at the start of the video).
