Blue Angels pilots are renowned for their flying skills and physical fitness. Their bodies endure as many as 8 g’s during the demonstration. “It’s very hard forces on your body,” Frosch said.
USA TODAY caught up with the Blue Angels at the Great Georgia Airshow in late-October. The Blue Angels agreed to mount one of USA TODAY’s specialized camera rigs, designed to capture video in 360 degrees, inside the cockpit of one of their jets. The Blue Angels released the video exclusively to USA TODAY after it was reviewed by the pilots and team.
For more 360-degree videos, check out the VR Stories application for iPhone and Android.
So grab your VR headset and buckle in! You’re about to take a ride with the Blue Angels that few have ever experienced!
