Don't Black Out

My Middle brother sent this along.  It is five videos of Atlanta Journal Constitution staffer Steve Beatty flying with Blue Angles pilot LT Kevin Davis.

It is always easier when you have the stick in your hand and you are making the decisions than when you are in the back seat (the "Pit" in the old F-4).

Mr Beatty didn't really go fully out.  Total G-LOC or G Loss of Consciousness can, in some cases, last for as long as half a minute and be fatal.
