Despite my disappointment, it was interesting to see the chamber and watch how they simulated the pilots going up to 25,000ft. A 1st Lt was kind enough to explain what was going on at different times. She got the conversation going when she said Sam reminder her of Sam - she has a 3 month old Sam at home. :)
Chatting with the other wives was fun and seeing them in their official gear was good. Overall it was a fun experience still.
We did bob Sam's head up in the little circle windows every once in a while which put a smile on the pilots' faces, especially his dad's.
Here are a few photos -- I'm not the greatest photographer -- but you get the idea.
