The sky's the limit. Indeed it is, as footage of fighter jets captured at the Chicago Air and Water Show last year in 4K slow motion has offered breathtaking views of these incredible feats of human engineering.
Slow motion jets
Here's a paradox for you: slow motion fighter jets. Those words don't usually appear side by side given just how speedy these fighter jets are, however, we're oh-so-glad they are today.

The afterburners and Mach diamonds were cool though!!.
Thanks @Canon and @CanonUSA and @DirkFletcher for making this possible. Look out for the Full WP Episode. pic.twitter.com/SvgAOCTala
Warped Perception shared a mind-bending video on YouTube on Thursday that shows fighter jets at an air show doing what they do best (by that we mean bending the laws of physics), yet this time you're able to see precisely what they're doing, as it's all in super slow motion.
The time and effort spent behind putting this footage together is the culmination of three years of blood, sweat, and tears, but it was worth it.

At first I thought my shots look kind of pointless until I realized that in my slow motion footage you can see the wings of the aircraft actually Flex as it banks into the turn. Kind of pretty cool!! I decided to shoot an episode at the air show tomorrow if the weather permits. Tell me your opinion and share your thoughts. I already got some really valuable feedback from viewers about what I should include and omit. #jet #blueangels #blueangel #airshow #airshow2019 #chicago #chicagoairandwatershow #chicagoairshow #2019 #f18 #f18superhornet #afterburner
After three days of rain that postponed the air show, a break in the clouds appeared and the entire show was crammed into a short three hours, which did not give the videographer much time to prepare at all. Moreover, the cloudy and patchy sky overhead did not assist in offering clear snaps. Regardless, the outcome is still impressive.
Sit back and enjoy the show from your own living room through this spectacular video:
