Has flying become mundane? We hope not, but if you want something with substantially more than your run-of-the mill spam can, you might want to check out a Russian company providing a true "out-of-this-world" experience. Moscow-based Kompas Hit Ltd. operates Fly The Legend, a service that provides adventurous clients the opportunity to fly in aircraft most of us have only seen in pictures. For example, the group offers rides in MiG 25s with the promise of an 80,000-foot, high-altitude flight to the edge of space. About $15,000 will get you in the back seat of this supersonic fighter. Are high Gs your preferred adrenaline rush? Kompas Hit also offers Su30 rides for about the same price. For a more relaxed experience, the company provides a variety of less stressful flight experiences with several helicopters and light aircraft in its inventory. Ah, what money will buy!
