So for my birthday, Jacs & the kids managed to surprise me yet again, with a drive out to Camden Airport for a joy-flight, well, no , an aerobatic flight, last chance to see me in one piece, best take a photo as I sit in the back , strapped in tight ( Belle looks more excited than anyone ) Jacs ( wearing Michael Angel ) telling the pilot to make sure he brings me back :-) The pic Jacqui just took off me, as we are ready to go
and we're up, never thought to visit Camden, but looks like a nice area and nice bush walking potential in the background there but that's not why we are here we are here to do some aerial aerobatics, woooohoooo, fun so for starters, he takes me into a hard left turn, so we are nearly vertical to the ground, buzzzzzzzzz !!! so that was just to get the feel of it, pilot tells me I just experienced a G force close to 2. So we do another one to the right this time, and he tells me to lift my hand in the middle of the turn, and yeah, your hand feels heavier , because of the G force :) aah shit, pilot has just passed out on me, now what do I do false alarm ok, now we go up for a full loop, and when we come out of the loop straight into a roll oh my, that loop was intense, and now the roll nearly upside down too cool look at that totally upside down and coming back around intense, thrilling, exciting, fun this is fun, and I highly recommend it now we go up for a "hammerhead" or "engine stall" turn which means going straight up reaching straight up for the heavens so we are 90 degrees and still climbing up and basically we keep climbing up till the engine starts to stall ( why does it do that ? ) and plane wants to fall back down does not fall backwards though sort of keels to one side , well, yeah , it does go backward for a few seconds at first I guess and then pilot has option of left or right :-) but with the sound of a spluttering engine to go with this view makes it all very exciting here we come ( wonder how fast we are falling ) GGGGGGGGGGGGG force babiiiiiiiiiiiieee just add your own roaring engine sound now !! well , that was fun, up there with my parachute jump Jacqui got me as a surprise pressie 2 years ago.
After this, we just flew back to base and landed, which, after these twists, loops and rolls, was rather boring so did not take any more photos.
Thanks Jacs, Girlfriend of the year !
