This video is absolutely breathtaking.
The Blue Angels are known for being some of the most skilled jet pilots in the entire world. Thanks to U.S. Navy and Marine training, these guys and gals are the cream of the crop when it comes to aerial acrobatics in fighter jets. Their most famous formation is knows as the Diamond Formation and there is a new video today showing just how close these planes get when they are in form. The video was posted by none other than Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg! You can use your mouse cursor to grab and drag the video around to see a 360 degree view of the formation as it happens!
Check out this 360 video of the Blue Angels by USA TODAY. They’re some of the world’s best pilots flying incredibly close together. I recommend looking around to see how close they actually are. This kind of immersive experience is exactly why we made 360 videos on Facebook.
