    Don't try this at home...Aaron spent a year making modifications (which he won't reveal publicly) to be able to perform these maneuvers. Unmodified, a helicopter won't do most of those.

          There are many different helicopters and teams that perform loop and roll manoeuvres. It never ceases to amaze what can be done in a machine that consists of parts held together by 20,000 rivets that is desperately trying to kill its occupants !
          There's a great deal of truth in the statement that a helicopter doesn't fly, it just beats the surrounding air into submission !!

            Let me use this forum section for what the name says:

            I have never seen my avatar heavily smoking like yours.

            And I know one or two four-engined jets. Let me guess, it is not Mr Travolta's fav jet.
            Here on my home airport we only know 1 four-engined "smokin pig", such as a Spantax DC-8, right?

            Man, several years before I have heard of a DC8 version for ms flight simulator, and even this version was only correctly depicted if it seemed like your avatar, smokin like hell.

            PS: Somebody said, and I don't remember his name, that you can roll and loop almost every aircraft.
            A B744 or a DC8, anyone?
            That's what airlines are good for, amongst others,
