What it's like to fly a fighter jetNo music. No flashy moves. No missile launches. And yet this video is still incredible. It's just flying sequence after flying sequence of Russian Air Force MiG-31s cruising through the sky. Filmed by GoPro cameras strapped to a MiG, this footage is probably the closest we'll ever get to flying a fighter jet. Seeing the world from such a powerful beast of a machine somehow simplifies things. (sploid.gizmodo.com) More...

I've always wondered if Russians think Western built aircraft look as odd to them as some of the Russian designs look to Westerners.
Well the covert Lockheed I saw back in 67 had both anti gravity and anti matter drive...Michael Schratt has pics of it at Mc Dill in FL. Now that was a crazy machine. My DNA is Slav and I just love the Russkie kit. Somehow the Russkie has the edge..just that little bit more growl factor.
Makes me really want to sign up for one of those trips to Russia to ride in a fighter.
Makes me really want to sign up to go fly one!
The begging starts once you get airborne. Lol
Right after the max performance climb of course! Lol
Pretty sure I haven't seen a deck angle like that, even in an empty Lear 25. You guys take up a collection, and I'll volunteer! HAH! LOL
I looked one time and the ride, depending on what you choose, is $10k plus. One time I was talking to Sharkbait from the Starfighters and he indicated a ride in one of their 104's could be had for a price. The 104's are rocket ships for sure but not capable of the antics of the more modern craft. Bucket list!!
Pretty far down the list on mine. P51 was tops on mine and did it at Cavanaugh a couple a years ago. One fine and unbelievably noisy airplane!
High G turns in a Cessna 150 was all I got in life. But I got a roof and food in my stomach. My Corolla tops out at 115mph and that does me fine...will cruise at 100mph. All I need is a chick 30 years younger than my current and that'll do me.
