KATC’s Tracy Wirtz Flys Thunderbirds, Nearly Loses Her Lunch [Video]
What do you think the effects of five times the force of gravity would be on your body? Tracy Wirtz from KATC and 97.3 The Dawg found that out when she took off with the USAF Thunderbirds. In this video you will see the good and the not so good issues that arise when the body is pushed to the limit! In true Tracy fashion you are going to get the whole story, even if it includes a little nausea. To be quite honest I laughed until I cried about 1:50 into the video, the expression on Tracy’s face is absolutely priceless.
What a thrilling demonstration of what these and other combat pilots face everyday. Not to mention they are doing this with bad guys shooting at them. Here is to the men and women of the United States Air Force, you make us proud. To my friend Tracy, I am proud of you too. You took the challenge, you took the ride and you came back with an amazing story. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
