Video: Guy Flies For The First Time, Passes Out

Video: Guy Flies For The First Time, Passes Out

8

On one hand it can be easy to take flying for granted, and to lose the sense of awe at what a miracle it is. As much as I fly and generally feel safe, I still consider aviation to be a miracle. It’s incredible that tens of thousands of flights operate a day in such a safe manner.

So sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that flying isn’t an everyday thing for many people.

In April I shared a documentary about a Pakistani villager who was flying for the first time, and his sense of amazement was cool to watch: https://www.facebook.com/AJWitness/videos/10156811325320557/

Or a couple of years ago I shared a video of two older ladies flying for the first time, admittedly in a bit more style:

Well, in case you needed another reminder that flying is actually pretty incredible, check out this video of a Kennesaw State player flying for the first time, as he passes out on takeoff: https://www.facebook.com/bleacherreport/videos/10154377461446006/

Hah!

    It's not a miracle. That means it is not explained by science. This is all science. Saying it's a 'miracle' discounts every single person that every worked, and still works, in this field. They didn't just sit around praying for wings that work.

    Maybe we should just compare the experience with something a bit more brave... like a fuzzy bunny:
