What Happens to Your Body In a Fighter Jet | Doctor Pulls 9.2 G's

I was contacted by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and they asked me if I wanted to fly an F16. I said yes. What happened changed my life forever and I’m so excited to share the experience with all of you. Not only do I get to share the incredible experience of soaring above the clouds at mach speeds with you from inside the cockpit, but I also get to share everything I learned about G-LOC (passing out), Flight Surgeons, and why women are better suited for this kind of flying than men. This was probably the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life, and I’m so glad I get to take you along :)

    Could you do something with the United states air force pararescue jumpers? They are special operations soldiers that pull the critically wounded off the battle field and treat them inside the helicopter while they go back to a military hospital.

    It is amazing to me what people, in general find amazing. I find Doctor Mike amazing. He is a seriously smart dude dropping some great knowledge on his viewers...me included. I am an Army veteran working in the aviation community and would love to hear the call from the Navy or Air Force to come and do a ride-along. This is so funny to me as someone who would embrace an adrenaline opportunity like flying with the Thunderbirds. Yet..I would not like to experience the adrenaline that happens when having to care for a patient whose life is in the balance. Enjoy your opportunity Doctor Mike. Happy that you can have this opportunity. Thanks for sharing. Now...about those essential oils.....
