    I'm not sure how to possibly express how thankful and grateful both myself and the FT team are for the amazing opportunities you all have blessed us with. We can not thank you all enough. Our hearts desire is that we can share these experiences you have made possible and hopefully inspire others to dream big, make memories, and build relationships through flight.

    We also can't express what an honor and privilege it was to spend time it all the incredible warriors who serve in the 187th and 117th. We all left with new friends and a huge appreciation for the Air National Guard.

    I hope this video inspires others to choose a similar path. We can't wait to do more content with these amazing individuals!

    Thank you everyone for the kind words in your comments and for your kind words for those who serve our States and our Country.

    JB

    This is what you call "trained professionals". He doesn't even break a sweat after pulling a 180° and 360° 6 G turn and continuous to explain everything in a calm manner. These pilots train hard so that their bodies can take the stress and high G loads…
    And congrats to Josh Bixler to "survive" the aerobatics so well… 😉

    Josh and the FT team. Congratulations on such an amazing moment. I've been following since the beginning and never thought a group of RC guys would have come so far and created so much. Congratulations to you all.

    That was absolutely awesome!! Kudos to the Alabama Air National Guard and Col Vaughn did a fantastic job – gave you a trip of a lifetime and through your sharing of this video many, many others will get to experience it as well! I don't think I have ever watched a 30 minute video on YouTube, TV doesn't even get me for that long very often but this was fantastic! Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year – many safe landings to come!!

    Josh, you were blessed twice. Once by all of us that are sharing this on social media to show our children the experiences we had before cameras were allowed in cockpits… AND… what all Americans need to hear: 30 year old F-16, 50 year old KC-135… but also blessed by who ever that so very professional pilot you were with. Tip of my hat to him, from an old Colonel who had the pleasure to fly high, low, fast, and slow, but has so little to show his family. Thank you for this share…

    My father flew KC135s during Vietnam. It wasn’t until 20 years after his death that I actually got to see one up close. Such a great video and wonderful tribute to those who do so much for us

    It is quite a privilege to fly on an operational fighter jet! I have read where it is possible to fly in a privately owned fighter in exchange for picking up the fuel tab.
