Scary/Amazing Cockpit Photograph Shows You What It’s Like to Fly with the Blue Angels

Ever wonder what it’s like to fly with the Blue Angels? Well, this photograph, taken from inside one of the planes during the Blue Angles’ practice last Thursday in Chicago, should give you some idea.

Tweeted by the Blue Angels on Saturday, the photograph was, we assume, taken by a passenger in one of the planes and not the pilot himself. We don’t know about you, but just looking at the photo scares us a bit… that is a LOT of metal moving VERY fast with almost no room for error. Incredible.

And if that’s not enough fighter jet photography madness for you, check out this behind the scenes video on the USAF Thunderbirds’ official photographer.
