This video of the United States Navy Precision Flight Demonstration Team, otherwise known as the Blue Angels, was shot during the team’s first full show performance at EAA AirVenture 2017 on Saturday 7/29/2017. The visuals are in awesome HD and the producers chose some super-smooth music to accompany the visuals where sound wasn’t clean. There’s plenty of jet noise too, but what sets this video apart (and makes it simply sublime) is the slow motion sequences in the clip.

Slow motion really brings out the precision component of precision flight demonstration. It’ll make you appreciate the finer points of separation so minute that distances between the jets can be measured in inches. Five abreast and diamond formations reveal themselves to be much more precise than they look in real time. Opposing passes appear to be even closer than they are when seen live and in a blur. Enjoy this unique perspective on the Blues and their craft uploaded by YouTuber airailimages.
