Video, photos of A.J. Hawk’s ride with Blue Angels

Posted by Mike Spofford on June 2, 2014 – 8:00 am

Packers LB A.J. Hawk took a backseat ride with a U.S. Navy Blue Angels demonstration squadron on Wednesday in La Crosse, Wis., and an in-flight video is available above.

Photos of Hawk’s excursion, which took place at Deke Slayton Airfest, are also available.

Hawk told reporters following Thursday’s OTA practice that he got sick a couple of times, but he called the flight “amazing” and something he’d do again “in a heartbeat.” The ride lasted 50 minutes, and Hawk said as someone who gets carsick, he first got sick less than 15 minutes in but stuck it out and got the thrill of a lifetime.

    Did anyone else notice that the plane took off of the runway at the very last foot of the runway…INSANE

    The plane was actually off the ground @ :23 but they didn’t go vertical until the end of the runway.
