….. or at least, that was the plan. For a long time now I wanted to fly supersonic and with Concorde retired I would have to look into fighter jets.
Sure enough, it’s possible to do so (for a hefty price tag) in Russia.
But then they got involved in Ukraine, helped shooting down a passenger plane and became seriously unfriendly. So that was the end of that.
However, the agency I contacted had other options. They had other, less fast, aircrafts in other regions but also the possibility of a Parabolic Flight, so I decided to go for that.
You basically get on board of a pretty much empty Boeing 727. It goes really high and then it dives resulting in you floating around for 25 seconds or so. It’s brilliant!
Mind you, I will not forget about the Jet Fighter flight, so stay tuned for when that happens……
