It was all going horribly wrong. I was a military fast jet pilot and I was in a spin, things were coming apart and I didn't know what to do. I was losing control and all I could think about was the end. But, as I sat in my office looking out over the airfield, I wished that I was having a real emergency in my aircraft because the one I kept having... ...was in my head. Imagine that there's an illness in the UK that the government doesn't fully understand. If you are a man, and you catch the disease, it will kill you faster than road accidents, murder and HIV/Aids combined. http://www.fastjetperformance.com/podcasts/when-good-pilots-go-bad
