This is How Terrifying It is to Fly in an Airplane Stunt Team

When man created GoPro cameras, this is what he intended them to be used for. This video shows the amazing Black Diamond Jet Team in training—and if you're scared of flying, it might be best not to watch it.


Two things strike me. First, the banked turns close to the ground look incredibly low. I can only begin to imagine how exhilarating that must be. Second, when the team fly in formation, the amount of buffeting which causes the planes to move relative to each other is quite, quite terrifying. These guys have massive balls. Respect.

I haven't been able to find it (yet), but I've seen footage of a Blue Angel formation where two of the jets' cockpits bumped together. One was upside down, one upside-right and the formation was just so tight that there was just a casual little bump while they were jetting around.

Guys like this are nuts in the best way possible. Love it.
