Take a thrill ride in a jet flying way too close to the ground [VIDEO]

Take a ride in a two-seat Typhoon multirole jet fighter at the hands of Flight Lieutenant Jamie Norris of the Royal Air Force.

Norris explains to us what he’s doing along the way, and you can hear the strain in his voice when he makes an offhand comment about how he’s pressing down in his seat at 6g.

This is certainly the epitome of coolness. Just look at how he skims along the hills as he streaks through the valleys of the Lake District in Wales.

Debuted on January 19, 2014, this video is currently showing at the London Science Museum. Magnificent.
