After some pre-flight instructions, zipping on a VIP flight suit, and climbing into the cockpit, off she went into the wild blue yonder on board one of the famed Blue Angels.
Her chance of a lifetime came during Media Day for the Little Rock Air Force Base's 2012 Heritage & Heroes Open House & Air Show this weekend.
This web extra chronicles only the first few minutes of her nearly hour-long flight.
Stay tuned for Jessica's full report on her Blue Angels adventure. It airs tonight at 10.
