Can you believe they can fly that close? Impressive.
The following video was filmed aboard Blue Angel 4, in the “slot” position, at the back right hand corner of the Angels’ diamond formation.
It was shot using USA TODAY’s specialized camera, designed to capture video in 360 degree from inside the cockpit of one of the F/A-18 Hornet of the U.S. Navy demo team, during Blue Angels display at the Great Georgia Airshow last month.
360° tech is becoming the new trend in aviation videos.
In August, we published a 360-video from inside the Heritage Flight Museum’s P-51D Mustang while flying and F-22 Raptor in close formation. Previously, we showed a similar 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.
