Video of the Day – F-18 Airshow Cockpit View
This awesome video that I found on Youtube features an F/A-18 during flight display. The cockpit video shows very nicely to what intense G-forces the pilots are exposed to during such challenging maneuvers.
The F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole fighter jet, designed to dogfight and attack ground targets. It was introduction in 1983 and about 1,400 units have been built so far. The jet fighter can reach a maximum speed of Mach 1.8 (1,190 mph, 1,915 km/h) at 40,000 ft (12,190 m).
