    Been there, done that… Kind of. . . I had this rocking chair once…

    Seriously though, this can be done in any plane almost, but not to the same. Duration or where. You get to stand up. Certainly learning to fly and when doing aerobatics you can get the same sensations and weightlessness dropping fast from altitude. Great fun!

      I am sure similar sensations are to be experienced inside Shearers head cavity.

      • yeah, but you won’t get a cool jump suit with a mission patch!
