On February 22, 1997, I had the opportunity to strap myself into an F/A 18 and fly with the Navy’s Blue Angels.
I flew in the number 7 plane, a 2-place jet. There was a fixed camera pointing back at me capturing video of the flight.
The video of my Blue Angels flight ran on both WTNH and the SciFi Channel and is an amazingly constant request from Google users.
Here is the takeoff sequence from that day in El Centro, CA.
