That's always been my reaction to air shows.

"Dude, stop that! You don't have to impress me. Just stop buzzing each other by inches and come on down where it's safe. Let's have a beer or something, just come down."

Best way to get an F-35 is to write-off our clunker.

Wow. I'll never experience anything that intense in my life.

That's kind of misleading. More explanation, maybe, but no triumphant live music. This isn't a dupe by any means.

Yep, that's how the flight sims taught me to land jets too.

He made it out, right? I mean you can see him ejecting in that last half second of footage.

lustygoat
yeah, he's flying a desk now though.

I loved the back story to this one. He was to perform a loop and come back down the runway, pretty standard fare for demonstrations. Before you do this, you figure out your altitude needed to clear the loop on the charts, so when you are watching the HUD altimeter, you can keep track of where you are vertically.

Now there are two different altitude references for pilots, AGL (Above Ground Level) which is your vertical distance from plane to the ground, and ASL (Above Sea Level) which is of course, distance from the plane to zero sea level.

Genius here, references the ASL charts to perform the loop, and then takes off at +400 or so feet above sea level. If I remember correctly, he punched out with a about 0.2 seconds or so to spare.

Check the net for images, there are some great shots of him in hi-res riding the rail above a doomed F-16.

Mountain Home is actually something more like 4000 feet above sea level. No wonder this didn't succeed!

Meatsack Jones
Yeah, I missed a zero.
