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.
