For the ultimate I want to do some extreme world aerobatics championship flights in a bada$$ Pitts S-2C....ultimate rush, nothing like it. http://vimeo.com/9082721
Ah yes the Texan the Air Force uses that as one of their trainers along with the T38. I haven't had much experience with them but I do with the T38. I am a air traffic controller so I am a bit familiar with aviation. Haven't been up in a T-6 but I have in a few different air frames. I am not sure if I can stomach the aerial g's of extreme aerobatics though.

I think anyone can as long as they are somewhat physically fit. It's not as hard as you think. You would have be extremely over weight and out of shape not to. I've pulled pos 6 g's and 3 neg g's. It's easy to grunt and tighten your stomach during positive g's but harder in negative. You're floating during one neg G and have little control of your body. You can still do aerobatics with minimum g's have a blast. One of the ladys in the vid sounded like she was having an orgasm and she was only pullling about 4 g's and 0 negs, lol. Anyway, I just saw today that a T-38 went down killing the pilot (captain in the service) and injuring a crew member...sad day. I would love to fly a T-38...wow. I like your job, you're a special man with a lot on your hands. Don't count yourself low, gutzglory goes good with your job. EDIT: btw, the Asian guy in the video that was collapsing in his seat was pulling close to 6 g's and looks like he purposely wasn't tightening his stomach. I think this was put on just to show the affect of g's to impress people. I've seen videos of 500 mph Red Bull pilots pulling 9 g's and looking better than that.

Well I am pretty fit I try and do crossfit as much as I can due to my crazy schedule. I have heard of the techniques of tensing up when dealing with aerial g's. Yea definitely sad to hear. Accidents dont happen too often but it is sad when they do. T-38 are fun but they slide a lot.

My job can get pretty crazy at times but thankfully I have the skills to do a pretty good and effective job at ATC safety and expeditious flow of traffic. I have pretty much done it all radar approach control, en route, and tower. Mainly approach control though. Also have controlled all sorts of airframes due to my service in the states and down range in iraq and currently in afghanistan. From fighters, to heavies, to light fixed wing, to helos, to UAV's and sequencing them all to 1 runway lol. Now that is the tricky part.

Thanks for the kind words. I may have to get a ride someday and do some more intense aerobatics.

I saw this up in Bloomsburg Pennsylvania a couple weeks ago at the 4 wheel Jamboree. Don't know why anyone would actually buy it unless they are a die hard superman fan, but it's still cool IMO.

the superman truck is a cool design in my opinion minus the superman badges. the second ram though is an abomination. It looks like if a international cxt and a chevy ssr had a one night stand and 9mo later had a ba$tard child lol
