The “G-Monsters” are coming to Houston!
***REMINDER: THE INSIDER ONLY TICKET LAUNCH IS SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29TH AT NOON. KEEP AN EYE OUT ON YOUR INBOX FOR MORE DETAILS COMING SOON!***
At this year’s Airshow, you’ll get an extraordinary look at some of the best pilots in the world, flying for you! Part of the fantastic flying involves fighting against the forces of Earth’s gravity, or “g.” These g-forces impact all pilots while flying. Everything from the vintage warbirds to today’s fifth-generation fighter planes. The g-forces really ratchet up during aerobatic flying!
What does this mean?
That means that a person can go from weighing 175 pounds (79 kg) on the ground, to over 1,575 pounds (714 kg) or more, while flying aerobatics. All in a matter of a few seconds. If you think about it, it’s pretty mind boggling! These aviators have intense physical training regimes that allow them to safely demonstrate the full capabilities of their aircraft. For them, it’s “another day at the work.” Click below for an inside peek at how it’s done:
