Best I can find on the net for the Marchetti is +6 / -3 g's.

Not saying it would rival an F-16 or anything, but it was still pretty impressive for a layman.

My point anyway was in response to bob's comment:

I don't think g-forces is much of an issue in the aircorp


....as I said, the gunnery exercises down in Gormanston would suggest otherwise.

Don't forget that with your old man in the back, the SF260WE would have been restricted to utility category loadings. :wink:

The majority of aircorp aircraft don't pull G. If the aircorp thought it a requirement they'd have it as part of their selection process.

Yeah, maybe so. He was an ordnance officer overseeing a gunnery exercise though, so it may have been a legitimate 'seat'. It was a good few years ago now anyway.

cheers..
I suppose if Gs were a real factor for the air corps as you said it would be part of the selection process..
Anyone out there experienced high or very negative Gs??
