This is the Blue Angel flight video mentioned in Pilotcast #33,. This movie is premiering to the public exclusively on The Pilotcast! Watch as Patrick Raycraft, a Photojournalist for the Hartford Courant gets a thrilling ride in the two seat U. S. Navy Blue Angel F/A-18 Hornet with "Kojack," Blue Angel 7.
The first week of March, Pat was in El Centro, California, photographing the winter training of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron. Pat flew almost 55 minutes in the cockpit. This is an amazing QuickTime video of the highlights of that flight, taken with a cockpit camera recording directly on to a DVD recorder built-in the the two seat FA-18.
The Pilotcast crew offers sincere thanks again to Pat, his friend CMDR. "Boss" Foley, the U.S. Navy, and the Blue Angels.
