Default Flight with the Blue Angels

A local radio hostTodd MJ Schnitt got to take ride with a Blue Angel in Pensacola yesterday. This is a link to the highlights. The whole flight, 52 minutes, is on youtube in several segments. I've only seen this one. 7.4 G's.

Pretty cool......I imagine most folks would have blacked out under those sustained G's.

Guy here in Philly (Preston from Preston and Steve) did it when the Angels were up for a show this summer.

His video was awesome, as was the sense of humor displayed by the pilot in some of his comments.

Alas, there was no G-induced puke, but a pretty funny little blackout period for the DJ.

I think I could be convinced to go for that ride.

I know, I really dont mind it. But I do think that when I see a celeb riding with the Blues.
I go and watch the Blues every summer, they perform over Pensacola Beach.. Its great fun, take the boat & watch the Blues. I didnt mean to hijack this thread.
