All I have to say is "holy cr*p", I've never seen a jet liner do maneuvers like these. The video camera angles/pilot skill aren't half bad either. You guys/gals that get to see this at Farnborough are sure a lucky lot:



I need to get out to Moses Lake more often....

You know it NOT a sim, rt? Or the pilots named in the credits are lying.

Go back a couple years and watch the Qatar 787 demo. It's a real flight.

100% genuine. Flown out of Moses Lake air field where Boeing tests many of its aircraft. You can even track these test flights on Flightradar24.

Good stuff!

Ever seen Tex Johnson's 707 barrel roll over Lake Washington?

I've seen the vid. Lol. Unfortunately I'm much too young to have seen it first hand. Still waiting for someone to repeat that in a current jetliner though.

I can only imagine the sheer force that is applied to the wings... dear lord technology is something impressive

I notice they never raised the landing gear...

This film is beautiful..
My father is 40 years air force...
I fear/hate flying........
In 1983... he purchased a Cessna elite 150...

Every weekend... he tormented me!...turns...crosswind landings.....

But I outgrew the fear...

I am still in fear..( if someone other than me is at the yaw ) only because I do not control the helm.....
But when I do...it's heaven..

A once scripted line from the show "Wings" said.
" flying is like knowing a secret"....if you are up there. You know.

This video takes me home.

Thanks OP for showing this video.
S &F.....

Gut wrenching for the passenger.....but the best ride on Earth for the pilot!

Tim... :-)

Yep..still trying to wrap my head around the carbon fiber/wings/physics.( no I do not know the material they use fully ) ancient Chinese secret...on that one...
But it works...

Only seen one demonstration...of the wings..( Boeing style ) do 35 to 45 degrees before a snap..
The reality is safer than you think..
:-)
And being fairly deaf.... that is a LOUD! snap...15 and startled is no way to start an afternoon...( when I as that age ).

Those babies are not breaking till a fat lady sings and states.."hey I need a wheat Stromboli"..." with a side of cardio "

Yeah, I missed that one by a couple of years myself ( although I have seen the "Dash-80" flying over Puget Sound and at on the ground behind the Seattle Museum of Flight)

An interesting factoid some reading along may not know....

While it looks like a violent maneuver to a ground observer, a properly executed a barrel roll keeps one positive g on the airframe all the way through.

With the exception of trashing gyros in the artificial horizon ( if not properly caged before hand ) its actually a gentle maneuver that any aircraft can theoretically perform without harm.

Here is the legendary Bob Hoover demonstrating the physics in a unique way...



I missed an opportunity to see one of his energy management demonstrations at Reno back in the 80's when he was flying the Shrike Commander and still regret missing it to this day.

What a pilot!

Edit: Just saw Bigburgh's post about meeting Bob Hoover.

What can I say..,
Bob promised a ride to an elderly gentleman...
Bob. " sir when you turn 100... I will take you up."
Bob was in his ( I swear the man was in his late 70's in 1993... but I was a bad judge of age then an now...)
Stuck to his promise...CHARACTER!..
He did...Reno air races..and show...
Bob was always very nice to us..simple Washoe county sheriff/rescue folks at that time...I was a young whipper snapper of big eyes and very fond of aviation...

Class...he had a lot of class.....
Oh and "Rare bear" .. how could I forget him........
You just don't forget those classy types.

A pointless excercise ? You wouldn't fly an airliner like that loaded with passengers !

( Though it could be useful dodging terrorist missiles in years to come...)

I'm not afraid of height.....it's falling...
Lol...
I can't explain it...it's an illusion
if you have some control.....you feel safer...
Most aircraft..are designed to pitch down and generate a glide...
But ya better pick a spot to land!
There are ( many truly years wise pilots here on ATS ).
I got my wings... but I specialise in AARF...
Aircraft/Airport rescue firefighter...and paramedic/nurse or .....PHRN...
Ffffff...nope yes I still hate flying.....
Turbulence still gets me....lol

Not pointless in the least. The point isn't the maneuvering, it's the thrust to weight ratio that it has to do those maneuvers, as well as the stability, and ease of control. All things the airlines want.

It's not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
