Tested member Cindy Klenk asked Adam, "What lingers in your mind about your U-2 flight ? And in your ride with the Blue Angels in the F/A-18 Super Hornet, how close did you come to blacking out in the positive G maneuvers?" Thank you, Cindy for your support and question!

Hornet pilots do wear G-suits, its just the Blue Angels that don't wear them. The reasons are correct though.

I had a neighbor about 10 years back, nicest man ever. He was a fairly old man, was a blue angel show pilot for a few years. He also was a classified government program test pilot. He flew planes we still don't even know existed/do exist from what he could say. He had gone down more than once over the pacific on failed test flights, one he was missing for 3 days. He was an amazing man to know. Sad to say, I know he has since passed on as his Alzheimer's had progressed fairly quickly in the time I knew him and he was not well 10 years ago. Respect to that man, and the many like him that we will never hear of.

I'm a few days late here, but I remember the U2 episode, and it's one of my favorites. I really loved seeing Adam's reaction when he was told he could go up, and how much that meant to him, how Jaime basically said that this meant more to Adam than to him, and told Adam to go. I know that that was probably the closest thing to being an astronaut that he'll ever get to be (unless he gets a call from Elon, lol)!
Anyway, that U2 episode was great, and this Tested episode is great!

There's a special kind of fascination and joy one experiences when talking to someone who truly enjoys what they do.

You should look into the mechanics and engineering of how fighters are designed.
They’re specifically designed to be “unstable” so that they can maneuver that quickly. Other large objects, passenger jets, boats, even cars are designed to be stable. They’re designed to want to stabilize themselves at all times and return to a “central” state. So you’re essentially having to fight the machine when you want it to do anything but that “central” state.
But fighters are not that way. They want to be unstable.

Especially after "Fly-By-Wire" came out. Once fly-by-wire came out, you could make a plane as stable or unstable as you would want with impunity.

As a pilot who is building his own airplane (RV-8), I love the Mythbuster airplane episodes above all else. Thanks so much for sharing your impressions of these watershed experiences. I got a chance to work at Beale AFB in the '80s when the SR-71 was still in operation. I was on a man-lift 25' up, drilling a hole in the concrete wall of a maintenance facility... looking down at the flight line and those magnificent SR-71 aircraft sitting in open hangars surrounded by guards with M-16s. I'll never forget that experience.

Man, imagine the Angry Video Game Nerd having to land on a carrier under those conditions. 😠 I especially enjoyed Adam's description of the videogame-like precision and seeming lack of momentum of the Hornet as piloted by a Blue Angel. Much of Adam's career has involved the precision control of various machines, so you feel the power of his amazement at that.

Interesting Hadfield's comments on the F18. In the 80's we lived next door to one of the pilots who flew the first F18s to Amberly as the replacement for the F111s he said he didn't want to do it because he liked the 111's too much.

I recall a documentary on the UK Red Arrows, and a Blue Angles pilot saying it is the only time he watched an air team in awe; and having seem some of the stuff the Blue Angels does, that was the highest praise a team could pay another. The irony was, the Red Arrows pilot said, after being told, "Ye', those boys are nearly as good as us." But he was also super impressed with them.
Skills. You either have the or you don't, and the people Adam flew with: they had them in spades.

I still claim the Blue Angels episode as my myth. I suggested it to one of the production team members when the we were invited to attend the MythBusters convention. The convention was occurring at the same hotel we were staying at during the San Francisco air show. I told her that you guys should come out to do a media flight during our winter training. The girl I was talking to said they would need to bust a myth if they were to come down there. I told her one of the reasons we don't break the sound barrier during the show was so we would not damage windows, and you could test to see if that would really happen. I found out that winter from our public affairs guy that you were there to bust that myth. When I told him that was the one I suggested, he told me the fans came up with it. I guess that is partly true because I am a fan of the show. Either way it was cool to have you come out there for a ride.

Adam thank you SO much for answering my questions so beautifully. I did not know the Angels did not wear G suits. Wow! On my last days when I was working at the place that the dragon lady was tested, I got a back seat ride in one of our chase aircraft (an A-7). I did the "grunt, still started getting tunnel vision. And Oh yes, I did lose my cookies (Whip off oxygen mast. barf, put mask back on (yuch). My very very best and most memorable years were working in flight test out where it doesn't exist. All of the people there regardless of job - from test pilots to IT people ,telemetry to whatever, were the best of the best and humbled to work with them. Among other projects I was privileged to work on Have Blue (the prototype for the F-117) the F-117 from its very first flight until it went operational at Tonopah, the B-2 prototype, the tail end (no pun intended) of OxCart (the SR-71) and other programs. The test pilots out there were the best and the Navy test pilots were the best of the best (no offense to the USAF, which I served in as an officer for some years) Like you Adam, when I start talking about those years, I just get so excited all over again. Some things I just can't talk about - but the memories are all there. And yes the guys and gals at Beale are a special breed. I have watched the Blue Angels and Dragon Lady episodes about 50 times.

T.C, Like you I have seen the Angels (and T-Birds) fly for many MANY years. I was there with my dad at Selfridge AFB for an airshow when an Angel augured in, in I believe an A-4. We were flying home from work the day that the T-Birds all augured in, out at Indian Springs in their T-38's. It was a diamond shape of four craters. Horrifying. They were still smoking. Since that time I have seen others - some were able to punch out, and others - not so much. Those are not the good memories. Was he able to punch out in the crash you saw?

"Little aerodynamic...thing" is called a 'strake'. Once you know to look for them, you'll see them on most planes. Once a plane's development gets as far as flight testing, it's vastly easier to fix any funky aerodynamics you might discover using a small, well-placed strake than it would be to overhaul the shape of the plane.

Here's a link to a great Youtube channel that follows the 'Angels during their training season: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vp76ivmc78.

Still remember my first time seeing the Blue Angles in Pensacola.
I had a math teacher that worked on a carrier and said he'd wear knee pads and he know where he'd get caught from the back draft of a plane taking off and be able to 'float' up and bounce of his knees. To this day I dont know if he was messing with us. Said hed visit his son while served on a carrier but that he couldn't do that trick again because the planes were so much more powerful he'd just wind up in the sea.

Interestingly, the U2 was engaged in tests in the early 1980s with the RAF MK3 Lightning to see if it was possible to track and intercept with a jet. The Lightning took off, climbed, and 'attacked' the U2 from above. No other jet could do this even the Russian jets specifically designed to do so.

Such a great story, loved every bit. When I was little my dad took my family out to sea with a rubber boat near the coast of Italy just to sightsee a bit, and we went far enough to be completely alone on the calm sea... until Frecce Tricolori came along with multiple wings. They did their stunts above us. I hardly recall it, but the awe and excitement. It was magical. Only years later I understood they used us as a sea level reference point so they could practice (we knew they'd be around to give a show near the beach) and I am absolutely sure they must've seen us smiling from ear to ear, knowing they gave a show just for us. I love those pilots ever since.

In the late 70s and early 80s, my parents would often take me to the annual air show at Tinker AFB just outside of Oklahoma City. I was there for the year when the SR-71 first went on public display. I remember the armed guards stationed around it while it was on the ground. I remember walking under the wing and looking up, and feeling like I could almost reach out and touch it. My one regret from that show was that I didn’t get to stay there long enough to see the night take-off, which I’m told is one hell of a sight.
A few years later, when I was a government civilian work for the Defense Information Systems Agency in the basement of the Pentagon, specifically helping to support Desert Shield, I happened to be on rotation at the building on a weekend. During the week, I only ever wore dress shirts, but when I was there on the weekend, I was a bit more relaxed, and wore t-shirts.
Our printer in the Logistics Readiness Center was broken, so I had to borrow the printer on the Crisis Action Center floor. The CAC is the room that they supposedly simulated for the movie “War Games”, but at the time, the real thing wasn’t so glamorous. I asked the XO on duty if it was okay to come onto the floor to pick up my printout (I had the clearance to be there if the red phones were not in use, but it’s always better to ask), and he saw my t-shirt. Turns out that he had been the pilot of that particular bird on that particular day. And the only reason why we made a connection at all was because I was technically violating the dress code.
Sadly, I couldn’t spend the entire day talking to him, but it was wonderful to meet him and to thank him for his participation in that show. Of all the shows at Tinker, that one has always been my favorite, and it was a factor that helped lead me on the career path that I took.
For me, listening to Adam is like getting to talk to that pilot. Only I get to do it much more frequently, and Adam can talk about a much wider variety of things that he’s done.

Hi Adam, had a similar experience with seemless instant movement of a jet. I did a ride along with the RNZAF 14 squadron co which was a radio silence simulation. As lead he singalled manoeuvres with the plan itself. The one that got me was him signalling a route change with a 90° bank. Experiencing a 90° bank and back in under a second is not fun

Ah, carrier landings... many a documentary has been done on this dance. It's not just "some guy", they're all pilots standing at the end of the ship where there's a lighting system showing the pilot their approach angle. The LSOs are looking at similar data while talking to the pilot. [ https://science.howstuffworks.com/aircraft-carrier4.htm ]
David Barak
David Barak - 20 dager siden
It's amazing how much precision is required to land on a carrier, and the mechanics behind it all is very interesting. Just to expand a bit on what Adam said, you have a half dozen or so specially-trained pilots serving as Landing Signal Officers - LSOs. If you've seen Top Gun, the people wearing white vests - float coats - and no helmets are the LSOs. They can often spot - and hear, hence no helmets - problems with an approach before the pilot flying the airplane realizes there's an issue. One LSO radios instructions for hopefully minor corrections if needed. There are also the two optical landing systems on the ship - too complex to describe here - and an instrument inside the airplane, all used together to get the airplane on the deck in about the space a tennis court takes up. Once all the aircraft of any particular cycle are back on deck the LSOs go to each squadron ready room and they debrief the pilot with details of the approach, things like being slightly too high or low, a little left or right of the center line, even things like whether the glide slops (angle of descent) was smooth or jagged. Once the debrief is done the LSOs assign a grade and those grades are posted for all to see on a "greenie board" in the ready room. Some say being a carrier pilot is like being an athlete - there's friendly competition and a sense of pride for a good streak... and a series of problems brings a serious review of the pilot's need for refresher training. And believe it or not, with all the precision required and all the ways for things to go wrong, it's extremely rare for there to be a major problem. The worst I've even seen was one side of the landing gear breaking off of an A-7 Corsair from a hard landing, and that may not have been the pilot's fault.

The “rectangle on the wing” is called a leading edge extension fence. 100% correct that it breaks up the turbulent airflow.

These aircraft are all negatively stable so they can maneuver so beautifully and fly effortlessly. That is why the FCS is quad redundant ;-)

I had no idea that the blue angels don't use compression suits! That just makes them so much more awesome at what they do!

Have watched the Blue Angels from the ground and a ton of their documentaries.. so insane. What is awesome about the flying is that a full roll on a F 18 is like 1/4" of stick input.. Today I was actually watching Destin's Thunderbirds ride along and one of the women solo pilots hits 9 G's multiple times a show.
