WATCH: WFLA’s Lila Gross passes out, hits 6Gs on Blue Angels ride

Living Local

The sky is the limit for the world-famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

As they took to the skies in Lakeland at Sun N Fun, WFLA News Channel 8’s Lila Gross was honored to soar with them.

She got all suited up, maybe cracked a little joke and was ready to ride.

The duo tried out all the tricks like diamond rolls, negative G and even climbed up to 6 Gs.

The fighter jet went almost as fast as the speed of sound.

Then, right before landing came a maneuver called the carrier break and Lila Gross was out cold.

She perked right back up though and finished out her flight of a lifetime with a big thumbs up.
