"I wanna be a fighter pilot when I grow up!"
"Sorry sweetheart, you can't do both"
"Not a problem!"



The f18 course she did was filmed. Look for 'Jetstream' on youtube - 8 episodes

p.s. for the non-French-speakers, little Lea is shouting "Encore!"- More!

The post on youtube reads "This is the first aerobatic ride fof my 4yo daughter. She asked me to go in flight and do inverted things. So, we discussed, review the figures and went to fly "

Worth watching just to hear that unrestrained laugh. How fantastic to have that to play to her on her 21st birthday - or to play one day for HER daughter.

Shocking. Why would you risk the life of someone so young, especially when it's one of your own, and with the display incident rate already off the mark this year. I hope the mother stood on the ground watching, feeling proud she allowed it !!!

Wonderful.


As MTOW says, worth watching just to hear her laughing - which got me chuckling.

Great stuff. Life is for living even for a four year old. Don't coddle too much.

It's a good thing they never exposed her to something truly dangerous, such as crossing a busy main road!

Now this brought a real smile to my face...I've a three-year old daughter, and bringing special memories like that to your daughter is worth its weight in gold! And such a laugh...

He was not displaying. He was carrying out some simple, relatively low 'g' manouevres at a safe height, to his daughter's obvious enjoyment and delight.

Bloody brill !! Love it. I have three daughters and I only wished I could have done the same for them when they were her age.
A perfectly safe manoeuvre done at low g, if the daughter wasn't enjoying it, she wouldn't be laughing as she was.

Brilliant vid, thanks for posting. Life seems so serious I seldom get to see people having so much fun these days.

My then 4 year old tossed his cookies in crosswind landings.

Dads do this kind of thing only when Moms are not around.

Prime example

Many thanks for the heads up Fox. Looked at the first few minutes of Ep. 1 and looks great.
