    A personal thank you to Air Force MSgt Ryan Crane for nominating me for this flight. Thank you sir.
    The Thunderbirds have a SEmemory Channel
    sememory.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.

@Rhialto If you read the description about the video you'll see the following: "This flight took place on May 3, 2019 in Biloxi Mississippi." Mace (the female Thunderbird pilot) was flying the #6 opposing solo position when he interviewed her. This year 2020, she is the #5 Lead Solo. So no COVID 19 during this filming.

@ruste shackleferd The Air Force Thunderbirds are based at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas Nevada. So in Las Vegas, you "have" the Thunderbirds. The Blue Angels are based in Pensacola, Florida.

say that we perfected the remote control of these aircraft or discovered a way to reduce the g effects on the pilot what would be the g limitation on the aircraft themselves?

I believe a lot of your problem was that you were not prepared when he made the move. Not having the controls of the aircraft makes a huge difference. When you don't know that maneuver is coming is when you lose it.

Seeing you get into that jet, get excited about your name on the side, and watching the cover lower over the two of you, I felt the nervous excitement of getting onto a really scary roller coaster with the feeling of there's no turning back now. Awesome video Destin. I learned things and laughed at the same time.

Great takeaway there Destin - not everyone who gets their limits pointed out to them takes it so graciously as you. And Mace has got it all together - confident without being cocky plus hypercompetent.

Your bodies equilibrium does a really good job at messing you up. What’s even funnier is when your body sees one thing but experiences something else your body goes into emergency mode and starts trying to evacuate.

I just love how you always apply knowledge with life lessons. Being humble is so important. I’ve had to learn that the hard way. And I’m always still learning and sometimes it’s a beautiful experience when the Lord brings you to Him and humbles you. Kinda like those G’s pull you in the seat. Sometime it takes force for us to understand His beautiful love and Mercy. Keep doing this stuff man!

Speaking on pito tubes you should have told your viewers to never reach out to touch them while boarding a small aircraft because they can be incredibly Hot they can and will burn you. They heat tbem to avoid them from freezing maybe you would have enjoyed a U-2 flight a lot better seeing the edge of space

That was outstanding. I liked the fact you explained many of the forces at work and the end results with each aircraft input by the pilot. The pilot was a cool, down to earth type guy and as you said, the slot pilot was humble yet you can sense her confidence as well. Thanks again for the interesting and fun flight. As a kid, I could ride any carnival ride over and over, but as I got older, my inner ear must have shrunk because I could no longer handle them. I have no doubt I would have tapped out at probably 5gs or less. The Angels and Thunderbirds are the best!

Woooow man... you've done something incredible, and please let me tell you that is not about flying, that for sure it AMAZING (incredible, fantastic, great and so on!!!! ). You've shared a life lesson that you've learned for yourself and it is about confidence and humility..... I'm sure that we have to be confident of ourselves, because this is required for life to achieve goals and objectives... but... at the same time we have to be humble enough to learn, to grow, to be a better person. This mixture, of confidence to achieve and humble to learn is what makes us smarter every day ;-) Sincerely, thanks for sharing!!!! Keep doing... you rock!

Your eyes and ears don't match up which is what causes the vertigo (spinning sensation even when you're not moving) and nystagmus (Horizontal or vertical unintentional jerking or repetitive eye movement). Your eyes are telling your brain that you're not moving and upright, however your ears ARE telling your brain you're spinning. Your eyes actually try to adjust your vision to how your ears feel. Hence why you get the jerking eye movement, because they want to level out to the position your brain is FEELING from what your ears are telling it and compensate for it. This is why when you're on a merry go round or something similar, you don't naturally stare forward, rather your eyes fixate on one point and your head turns with the direction of velocity giving you moments of clear vision because you rotate your eyes and head to focus.
