so on friday i made a u-turn after i left work and climbed back into chopper one.
this time without the prying eyes and hands and commands of hq.
i took her up and started pressing all the buttons i didnt see described in the three ring binders ive been pouring over.
most people wouldnt recommend that you do such things at 40k feet but most people would tell you that im not most people.

the boys below warned me not to try to “eat her out” which was a crude way of saying to fly upside down.
suddenly the machine righted itself, the panel lights flashed in unison and blinked off.

i couldnt move my arms. i couldnt move my feet. the lights went back on but they blinked in patterns.
ive adjusted the magnetic field in the cabin. your jet suit is now forcing you to sit still.
and thats when chopper one took it out of first gear and began to really fly.
