Subject: Mac and Flying

Why is it that Mac goes flying with Harm on Rules of Engagement - and seems to be enjoying herself in the process - if she normally gets airsick in a plane like that? Did I miss something?

[> I think Mac's problem with flying had to do with the G's that the fast jets are able to fly at. The biplane wasn't able to go that fast and she had not problem with that. -- NanaSue, 13:54:29 04/26/07 Thu

[> [> This is a late answer, but maybe useful. Although slower, a Stearman can pull almost as many Gs as an F-14. It's not just speed, it's also wing loading and power to weight factors. But the closed cockpit of a fighter, with the G-suit, rubber face mask, heavy helmet and constrained air flow produces a much hotter and more uncomfortable ride then the open cockpit, leather helmet of a Stearman. Think about a car ride on a winding road -- are you more likely to get sick in a convertible with the top down, or a closed sedan with the heat too high? -- Bingo, 17:10:32 06/06/07 Wed
