    A personal thank you to Air Force MSgt Ryan Crane for nominating me for this flight. Thank you sir.
    The Thunderbirds have a NLmemory Channel
    nlmemory.info/users/7_edytVWM8iumngqzTVLVw.html
    This flight took place on May 3, 2019 in Biloxi Mississippi. The reason it took so long to release is the high amount of research I wanted to do before releasing the video. I even visited the Air Force Research Lab at Wright Patterson AFB to discuss some aspects of this video with Aerodynamicists. Synchronizing all this footage and coordinating additional B Roll with the Thunderbirds Public Affairs Officer also required a lot of effort.
    These are my own thoughts, not those of the U.S. Air Force or the Thunderbirds:
    I've been around a lot of pilots and ground crew in my life and I must say that the professionalism displayed by the Thunderbirds was astounding. Their goal is to inspire and demonstrate the capabilities of the US Air Force, so I'll take it a step further. If you're a smart young person who is interesting in changing your life for the better, strongly consider the Air Force. The job market isn't the best at the moment but the Air Force still has opportunities available for you to learn incredible skills even if you're not interested in flying. They manage everything from logistics, electronics, aerospace, cyber and even space systems. The threats to freedom are becoming more complex, and in my experience working for the Department of Defense over a 15 year span (even longer if you count my work as a contractor) The US Air Force consists of some of the most intelligent service members our country has. These people are book-smart, but also have the confidence to solve real world problems with their own hands. If I have a complex aerodynamic question, my first call is usually to someone in the Air Force, because they understand these complex phenomena intuitively. For example, in this video you would hear Flack and I talking about pitot tubes in flight. We also had other discussions about fuel burn rates, Prandtl Glauert, weather.... all kinds of things. Simply put, if you're looking for direction in your life, and you're good with science and math... consider the Air Force. That being said, they also need other types of skills as well. Logisticians, writers, creative people who know how to solve complex problems in unique ways.

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.

Thanks so much for sharing this, Destin. What an incredible opportunity. I'm an aeronautical engineer myself, and have studied this same stuff for years. What I wouldn't give to experience it all in person! In fact, that why I got my glider license. Its been a chance to experience some of these aeronautical concepts first hand. 4 G maneuvers, inverted flight, spins, stalls, etc. (glider aerobatics are a fascinating application of energy conservation), but It only scratches the surface. I doubt I'll be going supersonic in a glider anytime soon. I love flight science and for me, getting to fly is a way to understand it from the inside out. I often tell other pilots, I want to understand flight from both sides of the drawing board. I sincerely hope one of these days I'm able to have an opportunity myself to ride second seat in jet fighter. We'll see! Thanks again!

Did that model of viper have the pressurized air under G-loading? I feel like that would have made it much easier, since I could tell they didn't teach you the proper breathing technique. Also, I suppose the purely horizontal pull is harder. But you probably could have gone for a split-S and used God's G for a 'technically' 9-G pull that was only 8-G or so.

As a kid growing up in Missouri I had the chance to meet some of these amazing pilots..I grabbed a pamphlet and they signed it for me. I was so excited. They flew over my neighborhood at a slow cruising speed and I got a wave from one of the pilots. I’m 56 years old and I still remember that moment. Dude, thumbs up to you for a truly awesome experience. Thanks for sharing this.

I saw the thunderbirds perform a couple of months before the terrible incident where 4 pilots died at the same time. They were flying the trainer jet at the time of their death. They went to the F-16 after that because the trainer jet could not pull up in time to avoid the ground. If they had been flying the F-16 at the time they would've all survived that maneuver.

Like she said it's tolerance, not tolerance IMO its but the brain learning new positions of its sense or. IMO its much like people that loose their hearing and artificial sensors are installed they can't understand until the brain calibrates. Its also like wen brain damage occurs and you learn to use a different part of the brain.. Its rerouted and reprogrammed! Amazing really.
