An experienced USAF Fighter Pilot takes us inside a flying fighter jet.
You are in for a fun ride if you have ever desired a fighter jet pilot to explain stuff that typically couldn’t be found in the textbooks.
The experienced fighter jet pilot Hasard Lee also happens to be a Youtube user and explains how it is like to operate the jet while having the cockpit view and what things the pilots eat and drink while on a flight mission.
It is a well-known fact that fighter jets don’t have enough space inside of them, and the reason for that is they are built lightweight as much as possible to make them fly faster. Hasard reasons it by saying that “every ounce of extra weight is seen as something the enemy could use against you.”
He further explained that the experience of being in a fighter jet could be pretty claustrophobic. Moving ahead, he described the extensive training process and the moment of the flight.
He also mentioned some of his personal experiences in combat missions. He mentioned a failed attempt to drink a protein shake and got the whole drink exploded in the helmet bag. It might sound funny to you, but for him, it was not a pleasant experience.
