Awesome display of precision flight by the Blue Angels put to great music by Van Halen.

But wait! There’s more! Watch the original video from 30 years ago below. Then tell us which plane do you think makes for a better flight demonstration aircraft. The F-18 or the A-4 Skyhawk with the delta wing? And which version of the video do you like best?

From this writers viewpoint and as someone who flew both, the A-4 is a far superior flight demonstration aircraft…and kind of think the video from 30+ years ago is the best!
