- Ride in a Jet Fighter? -
Anyone ever had the pleasure?
I've recently become obsessed with finding a way to experience this. It's on my bucket list 100% now.
Only place I've found is in the US in prop planes, and in MiG's in Russia for $11k.
Anybody know of any other options? Who do I need to get to know?!
Think I'm going to an airshow next weekend just to get my fix!

Outside of MiGs in Russia, this is the best I've found:

Either this is a really naive question or impossible...
There is no way no one else isn't super interested in this?!

I've flown a F-15D before, out in San Antonio. The power is just unbelievable.

I hate you.
How do you manage that?

I flew in an F-16 once while I was in the Air Force. I was an F-16 crew chief. It was something we got to do called incentive flights. It was awesome!

But yeah, it was a blast flying that. I could go into more detail but it's a whole lot easier to talk about it rather than type.

That is so cool.
Any suggestions for civilians to get into something like that? Is it even possible?

I'd do almost anything to go up in a fighter jet. I've wanted to since i was a kid.
I've been up in a Royal Navy Lynx helicopter when I was in the CCF at High School, that was pretty damn cool.
I also have a crazy desire to go up in a Chinook, I used to get them flying over my old office, every time I heard one I'd be at the window! Just something about them that I think is incredible.
