That's very cool. I turned the volume down while I watched it, because I was listening to Metallica, and it was an apt soundtrack.
By the way, is it just me, or are the pilots WAY too calm and stone-faced?

Is this for real? If so it is the most incredible flying I have ever seen. Fascinating to watch and liked the music too, but I surely would not want to be a passenger. I would be scraping my leg forever after.

How 'bout Steelie-eyed?

If you watch the male pilot I think he is doing controlled breathing for G force control. Badass stuff, I wonder what kind of G's they are taking?

They are stone faced because they are concentrating on not becoming one with the scenery.

Aerobatic pilots pull lots of G and in wildly varying directions, I've heard of top knotch fighter pilots puking when on fly-alongs not because of the absolute G's - but because they fling the plane around like lunatics, and those planes are pretty special too.

What a rush! I counldn't be a passenger either. I'd be trying to swallow my stomach which surely would have crawled up out of my throat.

Looks like their riding a rollercoaster without tracks! Talk about thinking in 3-D!

That always astounds me to watch those kinds of acrobatics. It's just not possible for a plane to do that and remain in control, and yet there they do it. But what Fred says is true--those are not ordinary planes. Those G's would tear apart your typical small plane. And it sure doesn't hurt to have gobs of extra horsepower at your disposal.
