Actually quite an old clip, but maybe some of you will enjoy it  

From a Dutch TV show called Try Before You Die, presenter Sophie Hilbrand rides backseat in a RNLAF F-16. Action starts at 11:00 and includes a 9G turn, some vomiting and a chick going KO:

Entertaining but the Pilots unnecessarily violent maneuvering is not clever or cool.


You can give someone a very enjoyable ride by just being gentle and smooth with the controls, whether its a B747 or an F16.

In this case, instead of giving his passenger a fun experience he put her through a miserable physical ordeal.


Unnecessary, unprofessional and basically sadistic.



The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.

Not to mention, totally her own fault! Sophie did not get sick til after SHE had been in control and did a triple barrel roll. While of course nothing can be ruled out with television, I don't think it was creative editing that made it look like she made herself sick.

From what I've seen, and I only saw the last 7 or 8 minutes skipping the ground part, the pilot explained what he was gonna do before every manouver, except for one hard left turn which he made after Sophie mentioned she had ear pains.

At one point the pilot asked "you want to pull 9G", reminding her gently this would likely be her last chance. She answered with "yeah, the vomit is out anyway. Just wait a second for me to clean up". My kind of girl! 



Attamottamotta!

Although I agree he could have been a bit more gentle, it was the point of the show; putting their presenters through very uncomfortable and sometimes a bit sadistic ordeals

This has happened in Germany, too, in a TV Series called "Sonja wird eingezogen".

She flew on board a German F-4 Phantom some years ago. Sonja Zietlow is an ex-Lufthansa pilot, though, so she actually knew quite a bit of aviation.
