Soaring with the Angels

Now that it's Saturday, it's time to unwind and have some fun. And what better way to do it than flying with the Navy's Blue Angels?

OK, maybe some of you won't agree with me. Let's face it, when it comes to flying, people usually fall into one of two very different camps: those who love it (me!) and those who dread it (hi Kerstin!). The Rhode Island Air National Guard Open House and Air Show may be a good eight months away, but for those of you like me, it's never too soon to start getting psyched up.

Here's some beautiful video from the cockpit of one of the Blue Angels' F/A-18 Hornets that'll make you feel so much like you're up there with them that you might want to have a paper bag handy.

So strap yourselves in, hit the full-screen icon, and enjoy the ride!


  1. I've never been in a plane before. Being afraid of heights, I don't think I will (without being heavily sedated first).

    I don't mind watching planes, though. Neat clip.

  2. Thank you for the video. But, it`s reassuring to know that I`m sitting at home in my cozy armchair. Where is my paper bag ....? :-)

  3. Badass Geek: Really, never? I'm glad you enjoyed the video anyway.

    Kerstin: I'm encouraged that you were willing to "fly," even if it was from the comfort of your armchair. :-)

    Lori: Thanks. I try to do right by my readers (all four of them)!
