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

I remember the first time I rode a proper super bike motorcycle with 205 hp at the rear wheel, and the power it had on acceleration made me almost black out. 205 hp doesnt sound like a lot but it is for a bike that barely weighs 400lbs and a 190 lb rider. 0-60 on it is about 2.3 seconds. people are hitting 185 mph on these in 16 seconds from a standing start. i had never experienced such force before. it got kind of dangerous because I'm out on a public road. I only took it up to about 45 mph but I had to fight it to stay awake for a second after rolling off the throttle. now it doesn't even begin to bother me. kind of like what she is saying. you get used to it.

I'd wager most of us think we could take those Gs, until you actually feel it and get humbled. It's a testament to fighter pilot training and physical fitness. Anyone who can fly a fighter jet is a legit elite athlete. Mace said a couple weeks off makes it harder to take the Gs, that shows you how hard it is.

I will be honest. I am totally jealous of your experience. I spent 21.5 years in the Air Force and got to sit in a Thunderbird, once, but I never flew or pulled G's in one of them. That was totally cool! Even with you tapping out on the 9G turn, you did well and you got an experience that I would love to have experienced personally.

This is a good video regarding skill levels, humble interpretation of one's own skill levels (humble) and understanding of progression in skill. I think most people have either way over or under confident egos. I would say from evidence that I can pick up most things very quickly while recognising it's rare, I know people who are next level on me. On the same side there will be things you just suck at that you want to be good at more than the other things, and you pretty much just suck at it 🤣
