Navy Blue Angels In 360 Video – Unbelievable
Kudos to USA Today's YouTube channel for this amazing video! If you're a flying geek like me and you haven't seen this video yet, this is a must-see.
Several months ago USA Today convinced the Navy to allow them to bring their 360 degree camera inside the cockpit of Blue Angel #4 flying in the slot position in the diamond formation. Seriously, if he could open the canopy during flight he could literally reach out and touch the wingtips of the two F/A-18 Hornets just above him. The precision flying shown in this video is just sick.

The best way to view this video would be with a virtual reality headset, but I don't have one of those. The next best thing would be with a VR Stories Application from USA Today. It's a free download wherever you get your apps. The way I have been viewing it is with a flat panel LED monitor, which is still pretty darn cool. You just have to grab the screen with your cursor and drag it around to rotate the view.
If you have ever wanted to do this, and I have, then you have got to see this video.
