I watched a couple of those shows and couldn't help but wonder how much it cost?

They are not doing this for chits and giggles. They use it for low lever training. I this money is better spent than the mo ey on Blue Angles and T Birds (as much as I love watching them) so CE the mach loop a that could save somes ones butt when the time comes.

Just my $.02

agreed cool, but those planes are also loaded out with wing tanks - would you do that in a training environment ? (or were they doing it for the pictures...)

Assuming they are on a training run, I assume you make it as realistic as possible.
