If you are afraid on a level flight...take a close look at my avatar and see the height of the trees and the airplane manuevering in a tight turn...
The turn was done at about 50 to 75 feet above the ground at around 380 mph.

That'* a real picture? Wow, I thought it was some kind of animation or digital edit Do you have a bigger version of that picture, or even some kind of video of it?

By the way, Joe... do you ever visit www.flightlevel350.com? There are some great aviation vids on that sight.

Now see I'd be alright at that speed I think. It just doesn't seem real then. Like the roller coaster, after the first drop I'm fine, but that long slow climb up the first hill scares the crap outta me. I hold on so tight that if I fell out my arms would still be in there holding on.
