    A personal thank you to Air Force MSgt Ryan Crane for nominating me for this flight. Thank you sir.
    The Thunderbirds have a MNmemory Channel
    mnmemory.info/users/7_edytVWM8iumngqzTVLVw.html
    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.

@RichardtheStark I'm no expert here - my claim to flying fame is that I passed my UK solo glider (!!!) licence at age 17..... But not supersonic!!! However the explanation (I think) is that the sonic boom is heard outside the plane (usually on the ground) when the pressure wave caused by the plane passes you. But if you are in the cockpit you are travelling the pressure wave - it doesn't pass you. Hopefully somebody will correct me if I got this wrong! ;)

So if you can break Mach 1 (the speed of sound) at high speed/low altitude but can also break it at lower speed/high altitude then how do we know the correct speed of sound. Is it measured at sea level or...???

I always thought static pressure increases across a shockwave and if that’s the case, wouldn’t the altimeter show lower altitude in supersonic flight regime? The altimeter clearly showed a higher altitude when the F-16 broke the sound barrier, and according to the video this is due to lower static pressure inside the Mach cone. Can someone please clarify this for me and explain why exactly the altimiter read a higher instead of a lower altitude since static pressure incrases across a shockwave?

Isn't the USAF technically a sponsor? I mean they didn't pay you in cash, but it costs a lot of money to have an extra person in those f-16s, they had to get you a flight suit, pay all the ground crew to prepare for your flight and teach you how to not hurt yourself or accidentally eject and destroy a multimillion dollar aircraft. Heck, they even painted your name on the aircraft. You're lucky they didn't decide to charge you for all that. Though I suppose they did, in a way, but you share the cost with every other taxpayer.

i've held off on watching this video for a couple of days. when i first saw it in my subscription feed, it was only a day or two after the fatal crash of one of Canada's demonstration team, the snowbirds. i know you're in alabama and probably don't get an iota of canadian news in your daily life, but seeing a video going up and enjoying a day with the thunderbirds go up so soon after a canadian lost her life doing much the same thing trying to help raise spirits just. . . felt off. maybe not callous, but a touch insensitive. i'm not in the military, i don't fly planes, but i am a patriotic canadian, and the snowbirds crash has a lot of emotion behind it for anyone who's seen them fly. i hold no hard feelings, but it's something i felt needed saying. Rest in piece capt. Jenn Casey. you died doing what you love, while inspiring Canadians coast to coast.

Imagine going face to face with God Almighty: Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence! Talk about Fear of the Lord! You'll be running away or running to His Mediation: Jesus Christ! I pray its the former! James 4:5 Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? 6But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” 7Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
