    My first…First, just so happens to be the first video following the video in which I posted my first comment on the Chive! I love this fucking website!!!! Video is pretty sick too.

      Looks more like an expensive short film than it does training exercises though

        Yeah, the first series of "explosions" aren't real, just set movie-style explosive effects. Later they have a real bombing run when you can see them actually dropped. Not sure what this video is…whether its a compilation, or if its all deliberately shot as a short.

        You want to hear some freaky mess? I commented for the first time yesterday at the chive on a aziz asari vid, then this one (a video of jet fighters in training exercises). I was 100 yards away from the f-18 that crashed into Mayfair Mews today. Thankfully nobody has been reported as a fatality and I dodged a fucking JET PLANE…keeping calm and chiving on.

    looks like a beautiful way to drop fire on some gooks

    That was just awesome!!!

    Aren't they supposed to do Fod Walk before the planes take off?

    As much fun as it looks, Its just model jets behind a green screen for about half of it. The flare shots are real, but the combat portions are super imposed. The HUD is fake as well. A too good to be true moment. But accurate to how much whoopass Merica can unleash!

      You Moronic Boob !!!!

    weren't those projectiles supposed to hit those vehicles?

  • Josh

    Fucking awesome and that is all.

    Reblogged this on et cetera*.

    You can definitely tell much of it is staged, you don't fly those one-seater if you are doing something other than touch-n-go ops. It was nice to see some familiar territory from the air, tho.

      are you retarded?? you obviously have no idea what you are talking about…

    This is cut scenes from the IMAX film they show at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola FL called "Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag". It was a large scale war game evolution conducted and filmed over several weeks with several international participants. They just cut scenes and dubbed music over it.

      So What ???

      • J.S. Wright

        So now we know more about the video. Jackass.

  • Underbaker

    Think they also have something similar in the IMAX on the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, TX. Looks way better on an IMAX screen though.

  • Duke McWood

    If I see one more fucking Corona commercial, I'm going to flip out.

    As cool and fitting as the song is; Did anyone else immediately hear "Highway to the Danger Zone" in their head over the background music??

  • noegod

    three words:
    This really deserved something more awesome for the music selection though. Something more metal and harder! It would have been more fitted to the brass balls on these pilots!!!

  • Irish Hooligan1

    What's the name of that song and who sings it?

  • Nate

    This is footage from the IMAX documentary about Operation:Red Flag. Its a huge multi-national multi-service wargame scenario conducted as a training exercise on ACM (Air Combat Maneuvers). This is basically an international version of Top Gun. This was badass on an IMAX screen btw.
