      http://vimeo.com/40935850 you're welcome!

      I would love for someone to explain to me what it feels like doing the manuver they do at about 7:13 into the video.

      Split S... yeah, its a good time! Roll inverted, pull to the tickle Or just above stalling (the "tickle" is stall buffet) at maneuver speed (aka pulling as many G's as possible) to reverse direction as fast as possible... How it feels? First upside-down hanging from the straps, then pressed into your seat weighing 9 times what you weigh right now. first you see the world inverted, then as you pull through the maneuver, see nothing but earth as the airspeed builds and the G's tapper off. As you pull hard on the stick and the G's build, you're striving to stay conscious as you fight to keep blood in your skull by flexing the muscles in your lower body. Your G-suit automatically inflates and constricts around your legs and torso to assist you. The entire time your head is fighting the G's to look up towards the horizon (imagine trying to move your head with a 90 pound weight strapped to it). I've only experienced this at 6.5 to 7 G's in a T-6. I can only imagine its a lot more fun in a F-15 (I think its a 9 G capable aircraft). And I thought that airfield looked familiar, RODN! nice video, thanks! makes me wish I was a jet driver... but only for a moment

      As I've told guys here, I'd rather go back to working F-15s working 12 hour shifts with only 1 day off a week, than work 4 hour days on KC-135s...this thing just has no soul like the Eagle.

      My bad. I know this. Not reading carefully enough.

      If you ever get to Japan though, you should definitely try Jiro's.
