Don’t do dumb things in airplanes, I guess.

That video does not exactly align with the description of the accident on the wiki :)

PS Rolling from the surface is ridiculously easy.

Lots of things are easy if you know what you’re doing. On the other hand, making stuff up in the name of looking cool qualifies as a dumb thing.

I get your point but on a scale of 1 to 10 on the technique-intensive scale, a roll with no altitude loss doesn’t even rate a one.

Lots of speed, pull up, neutralize, full aileron until it’s blue at the top again and pull level. Max +2G.

I taught my 9 year old daughter to roll an airplane in 90 seconds, and my family is considered pretty dense by Canadian standards. Can the self-proclaimed aviation geniuses try real hard, and fly as well as a 9 year old girl?

I don’t get it. My son on my wing. He's kind of bored.

Here's a roll from the surface at 400 mph in the L39.



That's easier than putting on my pants in the morning. No one taught that to me. I didn't go
on a two week course to FlightSafety to learn how to do that in a sim. It's bloody simple,
and as I pointed out above, I'm pretty stupid compared to Canadian pilots, so what's the problem?
