See the Thunderbirds Show From the Cockpit!

Not many people have been able to see what the USAF Thunderbirds' show looks like from the cockpit of the #5 Lead Solo jet, but now you can!

The video, filmed by several GoPro cameras installed in Maj. Blaine Jones' cockpit, captures rarely-seen views of several famous Thunderbird manuevers - the Calypso pass, the crossover break, and showing the incredible performance of their F-16s.

One neat thing about this video - at about 0:44 you can see an upside-down "5" painted on the aircraft during the preflight routine. Since the Lead Solo #5 aircraft spends so much time during the Thunderbirds' routine inverted, the "5" will appear upright for much of the show!
