Oh, this has to be a dupe. This HAS to be a dupe. Maybe bad tags? Why doesn';t it show up on search? How can we not be worshiping this man? Had to be tough hitting Mach 1 with his huge brass balls etc etc yadda yadda.
Link has already been submutted".. but WHERE IS IT?
Chuck Yeager breaks Mach 2.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyhJAeqON3I
S'no big thang.. the best was yet to come. Taking the X-15 into space.. now that was some shit.
Was just watching an interview with Yeager, about Mach 1. . "Well that was mah job. Ya did what they told ya to do. Whether you could or not, that didn't enter into it."
"Y'know, you and I are different. I was flyin', you weren't."
"The Sound barrier was jus' another progrom. Hell I was workin' on 10 test progoms when I was flyin' the X-1."
Fuck. Tho I do remember an interview from long ago when he was shilling his awesome flight simulator.. they asked him what the best fighter was.. "You take a good plane, you take a good pilot.. then always bet on the good pilot." He'd probably still be scoring kills in a P-51 if they'd let him.
He shot down a jet in a P-51? Fuuuck.
Oh man, this isn't Mach One.. I done fucked up. I blame PoeTV, because I swear I submitted this all months ago.. but hell it's Chuck Yeager so there ya go.
Was this a straightaway speed test or an aerial dogfight? Chuck deserves better editing than this.
He once held an opponent's wife's hand in a jar of acid. At a party.
"Its a great day for flying!"

There was a demon that lived in the air, and they said whoever challenged him would die.
