Yes, and there was a deployment of test personnel on board for the exercises. Comment is made in the program that they brought everything with them - own cameras etc. and that the aircraft is filmed/recorded as much as possible during the trials.

I noted some senior looking USMC guys on board in the back of shot during the rolling landing trials.

That little bird never stood a chance against the massive hoover!
