JDAM's F-16 Incentive Flight (HD GoPro)
In December 2012, I fulfilled a lifelong dream to take a ride in an F-16, which I was fortunate to receive as an Honorary Commander (call sign JDAM) of the 425th Fighter Squadron at Luke AFB. The 425th flies RSAF F-16s which are off limits to civilians, so we borrowed a Viper from the 310th. Unrestricted takeoff, 500 ft. at 500 mph; simulated low level bomb run on the Barry Goldwater range, rolls, split-S, some stick time for me and a whole lot of G's pulled. It was the best damn ride of my life.
