This looks way cool to me.

AFTERBURNER

And it is at a deep discount right now courtesy of Groupon.

Groupon

I just bought one and plan on using it the first week of
August.

Anybody else up for it ?

This is a test to see if I can figure out how to post
a picture.

I've done the T6 Texan, twice, but not in Vegas; at Warbird Adventures, in Kissimmee.

A couple years after I flew, they had a crash, killed both the pilot (customer) and instructor (WA employee). I figure I had my thrills, I won't do it again.

Thanks. I was actually wondering about the safety record
for something like this.

I plan on going up in one of the newer acrobatic planes,
although I guess they do in fact put them through a lot
of stress.

And yes, I'm still planning on going.

Oh, it seriously kicks ass. I did it twice, after all. You'll have a blast.
