Imagine taxiing down the runway with an open canopy, feeling the cool breeze through your body. After closing the canopy and being in position, the aircraft is cleared for takeoff. Adrenaline rushes through your body, making your heart race as anticipation increases. In a matter of seconds, you go from being on the ground to looking out the glass cockpit and being engulfed by nothing but white clouds and the bright blue sky. You are now 30,000 feet in the air, traveling at up to 812 miles per hour, with the feeling of 3,000 pounds from the thrust of the afterburners and the force of gravity pulling down while ascending through the sky.
