Video: Up Close with Fighter Jets

Are you ready for some serious fighter pilot daydreaming? This video is a beautifully shot compilation of a variety of fighter jets in flight, from airplanes taking off from aircraft carriers to formation flying to jet teams performing formation aerobatics.

The airplanes fly over various terrain, such as deserts, oceans and snow-capped mountains, and dodge wispy layers of clouds, providing beautiful backdrops for these majestic flying machines.

The video also includes several cockpit views, including some through head-up guidance systems, so you'll get a great look into what it is like to fly one of these ultra high performance airplanes. Enjoy!
