Although each activity occurred in the same medium and was subject to the same laws of physics, my first hand experience is that the pilot who flew me through the sound barrier and gave me tunnel vision on the way to 9 ‘gs’ in various air-to-air combat manoeuvres in a RAAF fighter jet was under a little more ‘stress and strain’ than the bloke sipping coffee at the front of my Generic Airways Flight 737.
