Watch 12 incredible minutes of footage from the cockpit of an F/A-18

F-18 Cockpit

With a top speed of Mach 1.8, an impressive assortment of missile and bomb configurations, and a 20mm M61 Vulcan cannon, the F/A 18 is one of the US Navy’s deadliest pieces of equipment. It also happens to be an amazing ride from a purely aeronautical perspective.

We get to see some of the high-flying acrobatics and mind-numbing maneuvers in this video from Voice of the Patriot. Navy recruiters, take note. If you have a shortage of applicants for pilots, just show them this video followed by Top Gun. Your quotas will fill up quickly.
