With GoPro cameras, we can see the edge of space and amazing aerial footage without shooting into the skies ourselves. Thanks to this awesome video, we can also put ourselves in the other guy’s shoes when American pilots engage other aircraft in 1 vs. 1 combat.

The video was filmed during Frisian Flag 2015, an international military exercise that took place from April 13 to 24 at Fightertown Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. The GoPro camera was perched in the cockpit of a Dutch F-16 “Viper,” where it captured every moment of the aircraft’s journey from lift off to landing.
