In this programme the lab rats face the most intense experience of their lives. They compete for a ride in the awesome F-16, the US Air Force fighter plane that can manoeuvre at a terrifying 9g. a force 9 times their own bodyweight pushing down through their heads, all their blood rushes to their feet. If they do nothing, their brains will be starved of oxygen. They have to learn a special breathing technique just to remain conscious.
