I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Jamming a camera in the side stick?

Seriously, from the POV of spam in the can, it is no different from getting on a bus, and probably less traumatic than a bus in a mountain pass. You will notice the difference when something actually happens. Moderate turbulence approaching Dalman, power in and around again. I don't know if the pilots heard the screams followed by the applause after their near death experience.
