Blue Angels: Fat Albert Airline on board camera cockpit crew raw flight 16x9 SD
I shot this on the Panosonic HVX200AP 720P30PN. This raw video is of the nine minute performance over Barksdale Airforce Base. Airshow in Bossier City Louisiana included performances by the Blue Angels and Snow Birds. I'll try to upload the HD version once I figure out how. It was a wild ride, mostly because I was in the cargo area and couldn't see what was coming. Thank you to the crew for assistance in strapping in the CAM and patching in audio from the flight.
More about the aircraft: An all-Marine Corps crew of three officers and five enlisted personnel operate the Lockheed-Martin C-130T Hercules, affectionately known as Fat Albert Airlines. Fat Albert joined the team in 1970 and flies more than 140,000 miles each season. It carries more than 40 maintenance and support personnel, their gear and enough spare parts and communication equipment to complete a successful air show.
Fat Albert cruises at a speed of more than 320 knots (approximately 360 miles per hour) at 27,000 feet. Four Allison turboprop engines, which produce more than 16,000 shaft-horsepower, provide Fat Albert Airlines with the power to land and depart on runways as short as 2,500 feet.
