Watch this compilation of insane stunts from the Blue Angels

Sierra Hotel Aeronautics posted a compilation of the US Navy’s Blue Angels tearing up the skies throughout their storied history.

The footage, made all the more epic set to Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor, shows decades of the Blue Angels’ ultra-tight formations, razors-edge passes, and mind-bending flips and rolls.

Watch the evolution of the Blue Angels, from the mid 50s Grumman F9F-8 Cougars to today’s McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornets bellow:
