ABC News has exclusively obtained video of Alan Gross' reunion with his wife Judy after he was released from five years of imprisonment in Cuba.

The video, shot by Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., shows the Gross couple embracing after Gross was released as part of a historic deal between the United States and Cuba. After greeting his wife, Alan Gross hugs his attorney, Scott Gilbert.

Additional video shot by Flake shows Gross just moments after learning the plane carrying him back to the United States had left Cuban airspace.

Flake traveled to Cuba early this morning with Judy Gross, Gilbert, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., to bring Alan Gross back to the United States.
