Death From On High


VFA-27's "That's a Shack!" Cruise Video Teaser by noor-anwer

The music is the key to whether I can watch aircraft videos. This one uses Derezzed by Daft Punk & The Glitch Mob. I don't much care for the tune by itself, but put together the video and the tune make for an enjoyable couple of minutes. There are a couple of interesting bits in the video: the clouds of condensed vapor forming over the wings at the 1:20 mark, flashing the marker lights at 3:04, followed immediately by a night landing on a carrier. At least I think that's what it is. All you can see are the marker lights. I have no idea what they mean by a "Shack".
    Kind of odd that some of the coolest machines in the world are designed and built to kill people. Fortunately for the pilots, it requires constant practice to maintain proficiency, so they get to fly whether there is anyone to kill or not.

Update August 2015: Replaced the YouTube video with one from dailymotion. YouTube claims it was taken down because of copyright claims, but the tune is up on YouTube on it's own.
