What is the ultimate video game? If you caught a glimpse of the pictures or the videos below and then guessed flying an F-18 for the United States Navy’s Blue Angels, you’re right. At least to me it’s the ultimate video game. What makes this the ultimate video game? The pilots cannot make a mistake, as you’ll see in these videos.
If you ever get a chance to see the Blue Angels, in person, perform their precision maneuvers please do it. They will put your heart in your mouth. I’ve seen their show three times; the third show was just as exciting as the first. Regardless of your age, 7 or 70, I’ve never heard anyone say they were disappointed. Not to mention, after each show the pilots are happy to spend time answering questions and signing autographs. Each pilot is an absolute pleasure to visit with.
Turn the volume up and make sure you click on the BIG SCREEN option.
This video is about 5.5 minutes and is a close up, and I mean a real close up of the Blue Angel pilots, their F-18s and some of their maneuvers. You’ll see what the pilots see. It’s fast, awesome and the background music is fantastic.
This next video is 3.5 minutes. It is a promotional video produced by the Blue Angels. You’ll see and hear from all facets of the Blue Angel spectrum, the pilots and their support personnel. Each individual is vital.
This last video is 32.5 minutes. Here the pilots demonstrate, again, their amazing skill and control over their F-18 fighters. This video is an abbreviated video of their show in February, 2012 at El Centro, Ca. The Blue Angel shows I’ve seen actually lasted around 2 hours.
