Look at it this way, if in a level turn at FL800, that mach 3.2 turn radius of 50 NM at 44 degrees of bank requires a bone-crushing 1.4 Gs....

....and these guys didn't wear g-suits.

(maybe not all of Texas haha :D , but a sizable portion of I-35, including the never-ending construction....what happens when the sun burns out? They'll have to finish I-35 in the dark)
