Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew’s road trip across America has now included getting up in the air in a fighter jet.

Minshew posted two photos of himself with the Air Force Thunderbirds, and one of them was next to a specialized plane featuring his name. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

He captioned the post, “What an incredible day spent flying with the @afthunderbirds . Taking on 9.1 G’s and over 500 MPH was an experience like no other! Awesome to see our military exude such pride and precision in what they do!”

The Thunderbirds also shared a short video on their official Instagram story of Minshew getting a flight briefing.

If you’re not enjoying this road trip, then I seriously have to wonder if something is wrong with you. Gardner Minshew is out here flying fighter jets!

Every single part of this road trip has been incredible, and I’m enjoying it immensely. One day, he’s duck hunting and the next he’s out here flying around at 500 mph.

It’s been everything I hoped for and much more. I can’t wait to see what Minshew does next during the offseason.

It’s honestly every bit as entertaining as his play on the field.
