This GoPro footage is the best new alternative to actually flying a war jet, though I can only assume that it will be adrenaline pumping fun. And if you watch the clip in fullscreen, it'll be even more awesome.

You won't be able to feel the g-force that's pulling the pilot, but the F-15 videographers were just in training and its part of ACM (Air Combat Maneuvering) practice between the "Fighting Cocks" and "Vampire Bats" squadrons.

David Cenciotti points out that the video is a great way to check out the JHMCS (Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System)—the advanced helmets the pilots wear: "it enables pilots to cue onboard weapons against enemy plane merely by pointing their heads at the targets."

Check it out!
