The Blue Angels' "Fortus Maneuver"

The "Fortus Maneuver" - this is where the two solo Blue Angel aircraft fly past each other in carrier landing configuration (landing gears and tailhooks down), with one of the aircraft inverted to create a "mirror image" effect. I think these guys executed the maneuver perfectly. (The weapon system officer in the back seat of #7 is actually waving to the pilot in #6.)
