Ever wonder what it would be like to do tricks in the sky like Tom Cruise in Top Gun? Well, you'll probably never know the answer, and neither will Tom Cruise, since he had a stunt double. But if you use your imagination, this 360-view video will make you feel like a total Maverick for 8 minutes and 12 seconds.
USA Today just released a video on YouTube that allows you to ride along with the Blue Angels from the POV of the number 4, or "slot" position. The video shows the F/A-18 Hornets flying super close to each other and displaying their moves, for the ladies,. OK, not for the ladies. That's just what they're trained to do. At one point they start flying upside down, which is pretty stomach-turning just to watch.
The toggle in the upper left-hand corner of the video allows you to take in the whole flight from any angle. Play with it and check out the guy in the back snapping the coolest Insta pics with his phone.
