Watch the Air Force's F-35 Demo Team commander break down each of his insane aerial acrobatics
Capt. Andy "Dojo" Olson may have one of the best jobs in the Air Force.
As commander of the service's F-35 Demo Team, Olson's mission is to push the fifth-generation stealth fighter to its limits and pull off the kind of aerial acrobatics that can give even the most casual observer a turgid aviation hard-on.
