Aside from cat videos, fighter jet videos are one of the things the Internet has a vast surplus of. And while those vids are often breathtakingly beautiful, watching them means enduring whatever stupid soundtrack that's been overlaid on the action. This video is not like that.

Okay, well it is breathtaking. But it's also chalk full of ambient noise. There's no obnoxious, blaring techno or trance, just the wonderful noise of the F/A-18 Hornet and its General Electric F404 turbofans, accompanied by a variety of in-cockpit views. You hear and see it all, and the extra ambient noise really does add to the atmosphere provided by the video.

Take a look.
