“Not a bad start to the day !” That’s what Blue Angels Lead Solo Ryan Chamberlain posted on his Instagram account along with an awesome video of this low transition.

This video give us an awesome perspective of what a Blue Angel #6 low transition looks like, particularly from the end of the runway. The video is taken from the end of Runway 6 at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station. At just the right moment, the video goes into slow motion so you can see just how close the jet is to the ground before pulling 70 degrees nose up into the vertical.

Yeah we kind of agree–never a bad way to start a day!
