A short video of a Launch and quick spin around the pattern (LOL) from a F-18.

To go on a ride would be one thing. To be able to go on a ride and be able to handle the G's would be another. To be able to do both and fly one under your own command would be out of this world!
It's almost worth the life you would give up as a normal human to be able to say you punch holes in the sky with a 30+ Million dollar toy your Job!
Much respect to these guys and the TEAM that makes this kind of thing possable. This plane would never get off the ground or return safe with out the huge support they have.
