Okay...I’m laughing myself silly just imagining a cat in freefall...
Now you have to do this and record it on video...all you have to do is place a cargo net between the the front and back seat so the critter can’t reach you...it would have to be the world’$ funnie$t video.
Of course you would have to wear one of those shark mesh suits to get the cat out of the plane after the ride.
Ya just got to believe someone took a cat on a ride on the “Vomit Comet” back in the early, fast and loose NASA days. There has to be film of that (pre video days).
The description on another post about the cat climbing on your head and getting a death grip is a spot on account from someone who did it first hand. And, yes, getting the cat out after the landing was “interesting” to say the least.
