    Raw Cockpit Footage Taken During A Blue Angels Air Show [VIDEO]

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    Thanks so much for sharing the video with us Chuck. I have also seen the Blue Angles many times...but not from that angle.

      Pretty Typical

      Just standard formation flying - we do it every day in the Air Force. It's part of pilot training (OK, not the loop with gear and tailhook hanging, but that's just to show off). And flying upside down for extended periods is no fun whatsoever. What makes these guys good is finding a runway that's floating somewhere out in the middle of the ocean and landing on it when it's moving up and down plus-or-minus 40 feet!!!! Take a look at their landing gear sometime on a static display. Then compare it to an Air Force landing gear. The difference is when we land, we "kiss" the runway. The Navy performs a controlled crash - and then hopes they don't bounce before the tailhook catches.

        I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

          How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

          The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

          I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
          Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

          If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

          Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
