Jaw-dropping 360° video brings you aboard a P-51 flying with an F-22 in close formation

Enjoy a ride in a P-51 flying in formation with an F-22 Raptor.

The following cockpit footage was captured at the 2015 Abbotsford International Air Show .

It lets you experience a 360° view from inside the Heritage Flight Museum’s P-51D Mustang “VAL-HALLA” piloted by Greg “B.A.” Anders while flying with Maj John “Taboo” Cummings piloting the Air Combat Command’s F-22 Raptor in close formation.

If you use one of the supported browsers (I’ve tested it with both Firefox and Chrome and it works) or app, by using the virtual mouse in the upper left corner, the camera will let you move around the 360 degree field of view of the spherical video.

Pretty impressive.

360° tech will soon become a standard in aviation videos. Few weeks ago we showed a similar, cool video, shot from inside the rear cockpit of an F-5F Tiger of the “Patrouille Suisse” display team during a flight over the Swiss Alps.
