Wingnut + HornetBall = Great wake up

I'll admit, I checked Facebook before I was out of bed this morning. This video made me glad I did!

Wingnut Productions brings some Navy fighter footage to life like I've never seen before. It's true, I'm partial to a little techno, dubstep, electronica in the a.m., especially before the gym. But even if you don't like the trance style, give the video a full view - you'll enjoy the cowboy ending.

There are actually two versions out there for your viewing pleasure, "DubFighter" is the 9-minute edit just with the fast soundtrack, and the 13-minute version "Hornet Ball 2013" is the full compilation of in-cockpit and air-to-air video that captures this years' training for the Navy squadrons.

Wingnut Productions, not to be confused with Lord of the Rings titan Peter Jackson's Wingnut Films, has a gem here. But hey, you don't have to be an Oscar-winning filmmaker to get some love on All Things Aero! You just have to kill it in the editing room with these fast-moving jets.

Bottom line: Amazing editing, great songs, awesome footage. And don't miss the crazy monkey at 2:08, the killshots at 3:08 and 3:22, and the 10-ship wingtip formation at 9:37.
