This Photographer Took On 9 G’s In an F-16 With The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds!

Photographer Blair Bunting recently became one of the few people outside of the military to ride in an F-16 with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds…

As you would probably guess, the footage he captured is amazing!

Bunting writes on his blog that they hit 500 mph before he heard “the most insane words that [he] can remember…. HERE. COME. THE. G’s.”

While the video is merely 2 minutes long, it is plenty of time to see Bunting respond to barrel rolls, a whole slew of wild maneuvers, and his body taking on 9 G’s at one point!
