Video: Blue Angels 'Fat Albert' And Stellar Cockpit Discipline!

 I'm actually on the way to Sun-n-Fun 2011 right now - literally... this post is coming to you from a Panera Bread in downtown Atlanta. I needed something quick and awesome to share with you, and since I'm gonna see the Blue Angels this weekend, I thought I'd toss up this fabulous video for you to check out. It has the most excellent example of effective cockpit communication and discipline I've ever seen.  It's simply fantastic. It's probably not unique to just this crew from 2009, but rather a necessary discipline for all crews when herding such a large aircraft around so vigorously at low altitudes. 

 I admit that I've sorta looked at C-130 (Fat Albert) part of the Blues show as a bit of a yawn. My bad. Seeing it from this cockpit pov gives me massive respect for the demo being put on... I can't wait to see it now : )

 Hat tip to Matt at LeavingTerraFirma.com for finding this 2009 video before I did.

Martt you are truly awesome for finding this. i didn't know Fat Albert could take that many Gs. Do all C130s have a little Hula girl on the panel?
