nope all single seater hawks mate, they do have a twin seat trainer which they borrow from valley, but you usually have to work for blue peter to get on one.

I had the sound off, but what a sissy. They couldn't have been pulling more than 4 or 5 G's.

According to him in scene 3 they pulled 7.5 the second time he passed out.

I'm pretty sure that 7.5 would put me on my ass too.

The Immelmann did look like less though.

7.5 would put most anyone out, but I think he's lying.

7.5 G in the 2nd 'blank out' one apparently
I love how his fat face skin wobbles

Fat? Venom eats little guys like him for breakfast.

If venom was in an airplane that tried to pull 7.5 Gs the wings would snap off.

My fatness is a defense mechanism.

7.5 G is alot, but possible in the sharp turn he did i would have thought.
Thing im not sure about is the G-Suit situation, i know that either the UK or the US only provide the tunic and not the 2 piece suit, which makes it easier to resist G. I think it's the US which makes no sense considering the comparison in defence budget, but then US Military NBC protection is woeful in comparison to ours.

Apparently women handle G better than men as well, there is a physiological reason for this but i forget what it is.

The real military pilots have the full suit. Not sure they had one for the passenger though.

Women and men generally have similar levels of G tolerance.

On the plus side for women: they're shorter, so the blood pressure required to keep the brain supplied is lower

On the minus side for women: they have less muscle as a percent of body weight than men do, so their G-resistance flexes are less effective. Apparently the two balance each other out.

A short, heavily muscled man would be the best for G-tolerance

I can tolerate G really well. Dooo di dooo.

Or that bird out of the film Boxing Helena. Although she would need some clever control system, but im sure that could be robbed off Mr Hawkin.

Yeah, except that you'd probably have to shave them to keep their hair from fouling the electronics

Hell, how would a plane take off with Venom in it?
