That video explains this article in a 1999 newsletter:

"Power aerobatic with Sean D. Tucker

Sean D. Tucker is the toughest pilot in the airshow circus. The show he puts on with his aerobatic biplane is simply exhilarating. Not only for the spectators, but also for Tucker himself: He pulls up to 12 Gs during his show.

"Last year I broke one of my neckbones", the pilot in the black pilot overall explains to the crows while he puts on a neckbrace. Its similar to the on Formula-1 racing car drivers put on to protect their head from twisting during side loads. During one of last years airshows, Tucker had bend his head so much that one of the neckbones gave in. The doctors put him into a cast and grounded him for several months. The thick "pillow" around his neck along with the parachute have since been mandated by his occupational disability insurance."

Sean Tucker is an awesome showman! I saw him this past summer at the Selfridge Airshow in Michigan.
