    This video was the opportunity of a lifetime. When asked if I wanted to fly in an F-16, I said "Yes please, and there are some things I'd like to study. Can we try supersonic flight at different altitudes?" I'm very grateful for this opportunity and would like to thank Flack and the rest of the US Air Force Thunderbirds. This flight took place on May 3rd, 2019. This Spatial Disorientation training is something all fighter pilots go through so they can understand how their own physiology works under these conditions.
    Thank you for watching and learning with me. I always wanted to know what happened in the cockpit when a jet goes supersonic. If you think this kind of content is worthy of your support, you can become a patron at: https://www.patreon.com/smartereveryday

    F-16: Intakes bird Pilot: CYA PLANE ejects if any of you know the nickname known for the F-16 being the "Lawn Dart" is because of it ingests 1 bird it takes out the single engine. Hence the nickname "Lawn Dart". Sorry Americans for mentioning this. Kinda had to after SEEING it

    Did you love it when the muscle of your face tried to keep the normal expression, but the G force was pushing your flesh down? ๐Ÿ™‚ My first time a 2.5 I nearly vomited… then I got 5 after lunch with no problem ๐Ÿ˜€ Never reached 7 though…

    I have no words… Thank you so much for this great movie and opportunity to touch what i dreamt all my life. Personally i experienced about 5G and i can't imagine what 9G is. But what "killed" me completely – words of this "humble" girl, who said "7G is comfortable…". Ohhh, mmyyyy Goooood! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you once again for this great work and…. Kind regards from Kiev, Ukraine.

    I once had a pilot school as a client and I was given an opportunity to go up in one of their aircraft. I expected a simple flight as a passenger over the south coast of England for 10 minutes or so.
    Instead, I found myself in control of the aircraft from the second we left the hard standing until the pilot took control due to heavy cross wind on landing. Not much different, I guess, from a pupil's first flying lesson but I can tell you my heart was pounding when we were at the end of the runway and the pilot says: "Take your foot off the brake and when your speed gets to Xmph pull back on the stick…"
    I really think if it hadn't been for the cross wind he would have had me land it as well.
    Not quite 7.2G in a fast jet but that was my wildly exciting flight experience.
