some of you may know the projects I worked on.. to my fellow F-16 pilot here.. You are most welcome brother.. for 10+ years we busted our butts getting this funded and working.. I have to also thank one of my unnamed buddies who didn't make it, as my inspiration.. brings a tear to my eyes after losing a bunch of buddies, and having a near Death GLOC experience myself which started my campaign to get Auto GCAS.. I was damn lucky to have woken up in an upright attitude.. I had pulled the power back before initiating the maneuver I guess.. the video scares me worse than the event.. This is a huge step forward in programming.

Goose, thanks for all your efforts. We all saw the need when we started flying the Viper in the early 1980s. We were not given centrifuge training at first and GLOC incidents were increasing with the rapid G onset ability of the F-16. Training helped but as you know it still happened. Glad to see the system is now working. It will save lives.
