    “They’re tuned for down low and mid-level altitudes, so you pretty much get pushed back into your seat”

    I can remember when RAF Mildenhall still had airshows (must be 20 odd years ago?) and father and myself went down on his motorcycle to get a good spot just outside the perimeter fence. The B-1 gave a fairly sedate display, including a low level flypast, then disappeared out of view. Nothing much seemed to be happening, and nobody (except me) was really looking out. Then I spotted a small speck with smoke trailing in the distance. A small spot that rapidly became a BIG spot! I shouted out to alert everybody else, and moments later it came past, wings swept back, at (I would guess) 400+kts, just above the trees. Mighty impressive!
