    That was a rather harrowing tale.   
    I always thought the F1 Lightning was an odd looking critter.   I never realized it could accelerate & climb like that.

    I knew it was fast but that video is more info than I ever had acquired before watching it.  Yikes! I hope Wing Commander Holden was wearing his brown uniform pants that day.  Amazing story.  Thanks for posting it.   :thumbup1
