When the Blue Angels come to town, which they are now, some lucky TV reporter gets to go up with the Navy studs. The whole thing gets videotaped and then showed to a wide audience. Ah, the hilarity, especially when that reporter either blows his lunch or passes out mid-flight.

The jet pilots say there is a trick to warding off fainting by tightening the leg and stomach muscles to keep blood from rushing out of your head, but that doesn’t always work for folks who didn’t practice that technique before facing major G-forces:

Here’s Stacy Davis in Virginia Beach…

The whole thing was no problem for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. What a man!

Now back to passing out. Despite her efforts to breathe deeply, local anchor Kaci Aitchison couldn’t hold it together.

No worries, Kaci, you’re a bigger woman than me for just getting in that cockpit.
