If it is a girl's eternal dream to live like a romantic movie, it is a boy's wish to live like an action hero! Well, Shahid got to live his dream recently in Bangalore when he flew the F 16 plane.

The F 16 is a sophisticated fighter plane, used in modern warfare, and well, just to get the opportunity to fly it was big enough, but what took it a notch higher, was that when Shahid Kapoor actually was given a mission while flying the F 16.

A source said, "The F 16 pilots train in a very precise manner, they never just fly the plane to practice, but always fly the plane on a mission."

Well, Shahid was no exception to this, and he too was given a target he had to attack and a mission he had to achieve.

When Shahid flew in the F 16, another F 16 took off with him, and they were buddy planes, who would assist each other in the mission. It was actually the pilot of this plane, who took aerial shots of Shahid flying the F 16. The mission was an adventurous one which involved a dog fight, ground attacks and even air to air engagement.

Shahid was thrilled to be part of such an elaborate and adrenaline pumping flying experience, which was definitely once in a lifetime opportunity.

Said Shahid about this invaluable experience "To fly an F 16 was an awesome experience. It was thrilling, and to be part of a mission was something I never imagined I would get to do. Bear was an extremely cool teacher, he let me maneuver the plane, and let me learn on my own."

Incidentally Shahid plays a pilot in Pankaj Kapur's MAUSAM, opposite Sonam Kapoor.

Says Sheetal Talwar, the producer of MAUSAM, "The Lockheed Martin guys wanted Shahid to have a complete experience of flying a fighter jet. They were extremely co-operative and id their best to make Shahid's experience an invaluable one."

Shahid is the first actor in the world to fly an F 16, he went through rigorous training to fly the F 16. He went through a simulator test, and various stress tests and blood tests.

Well, no gain without pain!
