Upper atmospheric research!

I was able to fly with Rob Holland in his Window World MX2 airplane today. We were able to get video of my experience as I handled 5G’s through some parts of the flight. During these extreme maneuvers, I felt my weight shoot up to 825 lbs. For more information, visit http://www.ultimateairshows.com/

Some stats about Rob’s MX2..

Weight: about 1,500 lbs (about half that of a small car)
Power: 385HP 6 cylinder engine
Maximum Rotation: 420 degrees per second (remember, a complete loop is 360!)
Maximum G’s: 5G (my flight)  10G’s (what he feels during the airshow) 16G’s (what this aircraft can handle)

…at 10G’s, a 180lb man would weigh an astonishing 1,800lbs…more than the  weight of the aircraft!
