Thanks Micky, I even have a blue angels watch! Very cool.
Ah, the memories. I was incredibly lucky as a cadet to get the same opportunity in one of the RAAF's Hornets. Same sort of thing - burner takeoff, pick up lots of speed and then stand the thing on it's tail and head straight up. Lots of aeros, a Mach run(up to 1.3) and then some low level coastal back into base. Was the ride of my life. I didn't pass out but then we only got up to about 6G and I had some instruction in the AGSM(anti-G straining manoeuvre). Did have a barf though and just like with that guy, it wasn't the G or the speed that got me, it was the continuous roll. When the sun is just an arc on your eyes instead of a single point and your stomach is getting thrown in circles, it really gets to you.
