WATCH: Wes Welker rides the G's with Thunderbirds in F-16
Wes Welker went flying with the Air Force Thunderbirds in an F-16.
Wes Welker always strikes us as an adventrous type. So no real, surprise, we suppose, he was willing to take to the (really high) friendly skies in an F-16 with the Air Force Thunderbirds.
The Broncos wideout took off from Cheyenne Regional Airport on Sunday and managed to keep his lunch from coming back up.
"The lunch stayed down. Trust me there were times where I wanted to pull the bag out," Welker said after the flight. "But I held strong and I was able to get through it. When I thought we were done, we pulled some more g's and I told the guys, 'I'm g'd out man, when are we landing this thing?'
"But it was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed my experience. I don't know if I'll be doing it anytime soon again. But I'm glad I did it and definitely enjoyed it."
Just the idea of getting in a plane that fast is terrifying. Watching the 9 News video almost brought breakfast back up here too.
