Media Flight With The Blue Angels

For this Throwback Thursday I wanted to post a very special experience I was fortunate enough to be part of...the Blue Angles media flight in Wichita, KS at McConnell Air Force Base. Flying in a military jet had always been on my bucket list, and this was definitely a dream come true to fly in an F/A-18 Hornet. They use the 2 seat trainer for Media flights (plane #7). Unlike the TV reporter, I did NOT throw up! But I did feel pretty queasy by the end. They did all of the signature moves that happen in the show. Including the one where they fly straight up while spinning around. Whew! What a ride. I'm a lucky guy. Also check out a video of last week's Blue Angels show below! Many thanks to my buddy Miles Chrisinger for the video footage!
