Okay ... I'm back on the ground! WOW! What an experience! I flew with the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and it was the ride of a lifetime!

Here's the information that you really may be wondering about. The pilot, Rob Skelton and I pulled 9 G's! And I did NOT pass out! And I also did NOT lose my lunch! Oh yeah, and we happened to fly faster than the speed of sound, SUPERSONIC!

It was a great ride. I laughed a lot, especially in the beginning because I was feeling great! After a few flips and some upside-down flying, I started feeling a bit fatigued! The Thunderbirds say, it's inevitable that you feel that way. And that afterward, you will feel like you just had the best workout of your life. And, that's exactly what happened. When I got home I was exhausted and fell asleep very early!

Thank you to the United States Air Force Thunderbirds for taking me through the clouds in an F16 fighter jet! I'll never forget it!

And if you'd like to watch ... the story should be posted on www.news9.com later today!
