Brian Udell survived an ejection from an F-15E fighter aircraft at nearly 800 mph. With one dislocated arm, two broken legs, and massive open wounds, Brian survived four grueling hours in the Atlantic Ocean at night in 60-degree, 5-foot seas and 15-mph winds while awaiting rescue. After months of intense physical therapy, Brian surprised many by not only walking, but also flying fighters again. Brian's 9,000 flight hours began at age nine and include more than 100 combat missions in southwest Asia. He received four Air Medals and three Aerial Achievement Medals for combat missions over the skies in Iraq. Brian now flies for a major airline.
