This Blue Angels demo gives you new reason to fear flying

Heads up.

One YouTube video is showing us what can happen when we try to catch an airshow from somewhere other than the established arena.

YouTube user Lynn Johnston was observing a performance by the Blue Angels squadron from the parking lot of a nearby shopping center in St. Louis, Missouri. As she watches the Angels show off their dips and dives with the help of fancy smoke trails, Johnston gets a sudden reminder about why airshows should be viewed from all angles.

Presumably, she walked over to the shopping center afterward for some new underwear.
