Yee hah! Jester’s dead!
Steve scored a ride in an L39 Albatros with Mark Pracy from Jetride Australia, flying from Tooradin airport (YTDN) in the south east of Melbourne. Mark ran them through a combination of horizontal & vertical manoeuvres during which Steve experienced a sustained peak of 5G’s. Best of all, he didn’t even hurl!
In flight video was captured along with the briefing and a few interviews. We’ll be putting together a special video episode that combines Steve’s jet ride and Grant’s 8G RedBull aerobatics ride last year with Joel Haski from Red Baron. We’ll also be putting together an audio episode on high-thrill adventure rides. Watch for these to come out in the PCDU feed in the near future.
Meanwhile, here’s a quick video of Steve returning to the ramp in the L39:
