I think it was the switch form a negative to a positive 'g'.

Kerry did ask why I looked a little pale, my answer being that all the fecking blood in my body was circulating around me feet!

That is awesome Rob.
Love how the colour drains out of you then returns on landing.
What sort of speed is it travelling? It looks so tranquil till he pulls a few tricks.

About 250kts on the straight and level, then upto 300kts when you dip the nose before a loop/ roll etc, it's the tightness of the turn which pulls the g though, even worse when you don't have a g suit!

It's a very strange feeling when that canopy is closed, bloody hot as well until you get in the air, especially in Orlando in early July!
