Reader, I will admit that I was skeptical when I first started watching this video. I assumed a local news station was just using a gimmicky new technique to jazz up a ho-hum story. I was wrong. I was so wrong.
If you somehow missed SpaceX’s amazing Falcon 9 rocket landing live earlier this month, or missed it in 4k, or missed it again when we detailed the drone ship Falcon 9 autonomously landed on—here’s another chance to witness the terrifying, amazing sights and sounds in 360 video.
We have “flown” with the Blue Angels, the Patrouille Suisse and even in a P-51 alongside an F-22 using 360° video technology. Now we get to see the what it’s like being launched off an aircraft carrier and flying at high-speed over the desert floor in an F/A-18 Hornet.
We have seen a ton of Blue Angels videos, some of them very intense, but now you can fly right along with them in the cockpit, looking where you want, when you want at whatever you want.
This awesome 360° video, shot from inside the Heritage Flight Museum’s P-51D Mustang “Val-Halla” being flown by Greg Anders, shows what flying a Heritage Flight alongside an F-22 looks like. The icons of American air power old and new were flying together last week for the Abbotsford International Air Show in Canada.
