The Blue Angels Look Suicidal in this Photo

As the US Navy's Blue Angels rip through the sky in their F/A-18 Hornets, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were a single aircraft. They’re just so. Amazingly. Close.

It’s partly a trick of the angle, of course, the perspective fooling our brains into thinking that they’re sitting atop each other. But they’re also flying just inches apart. Because they’re incredibly talented and, perhaps most of all all, very, very suicidal. I mean, brave. Very, very brave. [U.S. Navy]
