In November, Renfroe had climbed into an F/A-18 Super Hornet for a photoshoot. "When I was flying in the F-18, I asked the pilot if we could do some acrobatic moves. I wanted to see what that felt like," she explained to BI. "That was intense. Once in a lifetime. We did a break wing left, break wing right, like what I took a picture of [with the F-35s.]"
"It is one thing to see it and photograph it," she said, but when your in it, "it's this crazy, crippling, borderline painful experience."
That flight gave Renfroe a lot more respect for the fighter pilots.
"I don't know if it's something where if you do it every day, your body gets accustomed to it, but, I think just looking through the viewfinder and trying to focus on the imagery, and not being cognizant of the movements and the way fluids are rotating in your head, you get dizzy."
"You feel so much better after you get sick, though," she said.
