    A personal thank you to Air Force MSgt Ryan Crane for nominating me for this flight. Thank you sir.
    The Thunderbirds have a DE-film Channel
    de-film.com/ch-UC7_edytVWM8iumngqzTVLVw
    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.

Great video! Not to feel too bad about tapping out at 7.2 Gs please. Years ago a columnist for Flying Magazine who had flown just about every conceivable type of non jet aircraft took a ride with the Blue Angles in an F4. To paraphrase what he said: We had no sooner left the runway than I knew I was in Big Trouble and within minutes I couldn't wait to get back on the ground!" Many years ago I was flying with an instructor in a Cessna 172 and foolishly asked him how many Gs he could develop in that plane. I'll show you he replied before putting this little high wing 100 kt plane in a tight turn...I almost blacked out! So you did pretty good!

So are these pilots naturally just able to handle these G's better than most people? Are they just built that way? Can you train your body to tolerate higher G's longer or is it just a limit your born with or thats due to all of your personal psychological circumstances at the time?.

Pulling 7 G's humbled you. And how many people have done that? For those who do not appreciate ski racing, a downhiller can press 9 G's in a compression and turn with speeds sometimes in excess of 150 KPH/90 MPH

Also a dream of mine to fly with the Tbirds! I follow Mace on Instagram and was so stoked to see her in this! This video (and all that I've seen) is put together so well.

I flew in the Air Force for 5 years as a Flight Test Engineer in the Air Force . One of the things about pulling say 6 or 7 g's is that EVERYTHING weighs 7 times what it does on earth. Consider your blood, head, eyelids, arms etc. A g-suit squeezes your legs to keep blood from pooling. What most people don't think about about is that whatever is in the bladder weighs 7 times normal. Believe me, that is UNCOMFORTABLE!!

The smaller build you are, the better of a pilot you would be. Short and bulky are able to pull the better G's. Like if you're 5'8 5'9 and weigh around 150-170. You'd be able to pull it off fairly well and with less practice.

Sir( I used sir cuz to me sir means a teacher , and sir I am from India and I have learnt it from mahabharat episodes the highest studious student was Eklavya and his teacher was guru dharona charya, he cut his dominant hand thumb to pay respect to his teacher in archery, which was kind of cruel until one who who knows about Mahabharat, regardless) there are only two teachers in youtube according to me (neither of them is on top infact both are,but since I am addressing in your YouTube section then sir it's you and Mark Rober sir) who I respect and one of them is you....... But for me you and other person is far greater then guru dharona charya as a techer cuz you haven't asked a single person for anything just to consider your teachings and to subscribe so that they can learn more
