There’s no denying that 360 video is cool, but the files required are large and can really bog down if you’re watching them online. Now, Facebook has developed a way to compress the videos by as much as 80 percent without any loss in quality.
The Blue Angels are insanely talented—and, if this video is anything to go by, also more than a little nuts. The 360-degree view from a cockpit of one of their F18s is amazing, exhilarating and absolutely terrifying all at once.
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.
If we can agree on one thing, let's agree on this: 360° videos are unbelievably awesome because they completely immerse you into the video itself. Actually, video isn't even the right word for them because 360° videos fully capture everything around you, below you and above you—they're a recording of real life.
