Check out this picture:



The thing is, it COULD be done! These aircraft have hardpoints on the wings to support 1000-pound packages, why not a few seats with a windshield?

What would your ultimate ride be?

They have this incredible ride outside a drug-store near my house. It's shaped like an airplane but the seat is super tiny...really bad design flaw...You put a quarter in and it gyrates for 3 minutes. It's been broken for a few months though.  Sad

I must unashamedly admit this is not my cup of tea. I have been crewing old warbirds for over a quarter century. My partner is Traron-rated but I feel uncomfortable in formation, even as copo. Since I recognise my deficiency, I don't participate in such events. It's my personal version of common sense.

I've been at many airshows and watched the Blues and 'Birds perform and am thrilled by the expertise and choreography. On a political side, I'm also glad to see some of my tax-dollars being spent on great machinery and great young (mostly) men who are so very much more capible than I could ever dream of being.

But could I do it? Naaaw. I'd probably spill the last two days' intake on the first at-speed aileron roll. One of these days I shall relate a story from two TG pilots at Nellis whose temporary mission was to 'acclimate' a particular young actor for a movie we've all seen. To the actor's credit, he now flies a P51... and I still happily lumber around in the backseat of a TBM. Regards...Jack

Man, if that's directed at me, I am at a loss. Regards...Jack
