The Best Tourist Attraction Ever? Flying a REAL Fighter Jet

Always wanted to fly a real fighter jet but didn't know how? Perhaps this tourist attraction is for you! Flight skills are not required and even a layman such as yourself, may take over the controls in the air and fly the aircraft. Talk about the most amazing experience of a lifetime! 
MiGFlug has come up with an attraction like no other. Their jets are based around the world so you don't have to travel far to fly one - flying above the Gulf of Mexico, the Adriatic Sea, through Valleys, over Mountain Summits and even to the Edge of Space. According to their site:

During the jet flight, you will even get the chance to fly the jet by yourself and perform stunning manoeuvres in the jet fighter aircraft, if you desire to do so. The flight consists of manoeuvres like loops, rolls, immelman turns and, depending on the aircraft and location, spectacular low-passes above the airfield as well as supersonic flights. Our pilots will adjust the flight to your wishes whenever possible.

Depending on weather and temperature, you can reach up to 20-22km altitude, 17km is guaranteed. Only astronauts and cosmonauts aboard ISS will fly higher at this point. You can clearly see the curvature of the Earth. The atmosphere looks like a blue fog, covering the Earth far below. Over you the sky turn very dark, sprinkled with countless stars. An incredible view that only few people enjoyed so far!
