VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Amazing footage inside cockpit of fighter jet, as pilot does killer stunts at UK airshow

Video filmed inside the cockpit of a MiG-29 jetThis year’s Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford has been receiving a lot of media attention in recent days, most of which has focused on a British Airways A380, which flew in formation with the Royal Air Force’s Red Arrows.

However, that wasn’t the only cool display to take place at the British aviation event. The Polish Air Force also impressed with their own acrobatic displays, involving the MiG-29 Fulcrum aircraft.

Imagine piloting the fighter jet, with around 130,000 visitors at the Royal International Air Tattoo, all mesmerised as the MiG-29 Fulcrum performed rolls and high g-force turns.

Actually, scrap that… you don’t need to imagine at all, because a cool new video was filmed inside the cockpit, showing Captain Adrian Rojek doing his thing over the Cotswolds.

All the footage was captured on the new Replay XD camera which is so small it can be mounted in places where cameras have not been able to film before.

You can watch the footage below, which has been uploaded onto’s YouTube channel.

“The Russian built fighter jet can fly at Mach 2.25 and has a top speed of almost 1500 miles per hour making it a giant among modern-day combat jets,” reported the newspaper.

“Fast jet pilots are trained to do special clenches and breathing to avoid the risk of g-force induced lack of consciousness (GLOC) and they also wear special clothing.”
