    Friend of mine I used to fly with online (combat flight sims) took this video on a "functional check flight". He was just up flying around and having fun it looks like, hehe. He's in Test Pilot school right now flying a bunch of different aircraft, lucky guy. Just remembered I had this hosted on a website.

    Really enjoyed the video.

    I'd love to hear the version with the jet sounds.

    in-f'n-credible!

    thanks for sharing. I just wish I had a bit of sound from the plane to go along with the tunes.

    Well inside the jet the sound isn't anything special, just a hum that changes with varying throttle inputs and some rumbling when you hit the burners. But yeah, I wish I had one with just the jet / wind sounds.

    Did you run out of bandwidth? The download just died about halfway through for me and I can't get it to start over.
