Hungry? Grab A Snickers Bar From Your Front Seat Hornet Pilot

You’re not yourself when your hungry.  You probably aren’t the best wingman in a formation either.  So grab a snickers bar from the guy sitting in front of you.

In the humorous clip below, you’ll see two F/A-18 Hornet pass a Snickers bar from front seat to the back seat by pushing forward on the stick slightly to produce negative G’s. Negative G’s produce the sense of weightlessness in an aircraft cabin.  The same principle was used by NASA’s Boeing 707 “Vomit Comet” to train astronauts.
