The very best 'In Cockpit' video

Recommended Posts

Ralph (Sheik) Aarts already with a reputation and large fan following, experiencing the effects of high 'G' at RIAT Fairford but watch him use Negative 'G' at 08.38. Amazing video showing the pressures on young fast jet pilots.

 

 

 

Fantastic and addictive viewing.  Please don't watch with a full stomach.

Now you see why fighter pilots are so thin. Great video, Thanks for sharing.

A remarkable video- I continue to be amazed that the pilot can maintain situational awareness given the pummeling his body is taking.

A long time ago I played with aerobatics on my FS triple screen setup. Even with no physical motion, the optics alone would occasionally leave me a bit queasy. I decided then to decline any invitation to ride as a fighter passenger at airshows!

Flying an Immelmann manoeuvre in FS9 was stomach churning!

I agree, It's a fantastic video, clearly showing the stress on the airframe and the vortices the amount of 'G' that seems to present throughout the display.  I bet he doesn't eat much before doing that.

 

In the reverse G his face turns the same colour as his shirt.  :Whew:

I wonder how many of us would agree to change places with him? Be honest now.  :yahoo:

Nice video.

 

Too bad the sound tape doesn't include the pilot breathing (very informative about the physical stress level and the way the pilot manages it).

I watched that "after" lunch! I always advise people who fly with me to have a good breakfast. And I never carry sick bags. Consequently no-one ever has air sickness.

 

It also brough back memories of when many years ago I had a ride in an E.E. Lightning! No computers to help you in that aircraft!

Having done some aerobatics in a Mustang, I can appreciate what the pilot feels like in these maneuvers, and I didn't go through half the G's he's pushing!!!
