Three tons of jet airplane, 2700 pounds of thrust, 400 miles per hour, a 360 degree inside loop at 4G's just 36 inches from the next guy. It's the most dangerous job in the nation, and it's the most sought after. This exhilarating film takes you to places Canadians have never been before: into the training rooms, hangers, planning briefings, backstage at the air shows and, most importantly, into the cockpit. Watch and listen as the pilots reveal what it means to hold that stick. We see how each of the 1800 seconds of the show is broken down and rehearsed. There is no margin for error. A slight shift in wind, a stick not pushed far enough, too fast, too slow, a bird strike, any of ten thousand variables can throw off the whole show. The pilots fight to keep the planes synchronized in a physically demanding situation that takes as much out of a pilot as a marathon does out of a runner.
