    Blue Angels

    Found this link of a reported who takes a ride in a blue angels cockpit and does some barrel rolls and hit some pretty high G's... and oh by the way passes out three times!!!

    Scene #3 is my favorite...

    just wondering, but has anybody on the Michigan side of the Lake Michigan shoreline ever seen jets fly extremely low doing fly-byes? At least 5-6 times this summer we have seen some, so low that you could actually see the driver, had to have been even with the tree lines of the dunes, and one time we even saw a stealth bomber, that was honestly more freaky then awsome, seeing something like that randomly fly over you very low is a tad scary

    I have seen stuff just like you are talking about and also seen these guys in an airshow dozens of times... Two things:

    After some other snooping I found out the pilot in this video died recently in an air show...

    The blue angels and others are amazing and I know that I couldn't do what they do.... Seems like the Navy lost an amazing pilot.

    I was out on the water in Lake Ontario couple summers ago and for some reason they were doing low flying high speed runs about two miles off shore... silver F-14's... really cool and really loud!!!!

    One of the coolest things that has ever happend to me. I was riding my Friends Polaris SLT 750 on michigan about 3 or 4 years ago and this was while the Air show was going on in Chicago. and the Base where the planes were parked was near where we rode. out of nowhere while iw as hauling ass a F-14 flew right over my head about 3-4 football fields up. One of the coolest things i have ever seen. I was in a complete awh for about 5 min.

    That brings back memories of being in the NAVY. I got to fly back seat in F-4's, that was better than any ride at any park!!

    My son loved the video clips.
