Broadcasting from the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, MA. In this show: “Flipping” airliners, listener feedback and more! Don’t forget that you may leave feedback (free!) by clicking the Google Voice widget (over there on the right). I’m “Capt Jeff” on Facebook, and “jeffnielsen” on Twitter.

I mentioned (briefly) Capt. Harvey “Hoot” Gibson in the show. He was involved in an “incident” in 1979 over Saginaw, MI, where the TWA 727 he was flying rolled twice, losing 34,000 feet and exceeding 6 Gs in the process! Here’s a link to a Wikipedia article about the flight: TWA Flight 841

I also remembered (after my recording session, of course!) that a guy named “Tex” Johnston, a Boeing test pilot, performed a barrel roll in a B-707 prototype in 1955. Here’s the video:

    You make me laugh. Your disgust with the crazy interpretations of these screenwriters has made my afternoon. For about 5 minutes until something else amuses me.

    I have a question for your next podcast. What is the difference between the pilot and the copilot? Is it a different career path or are copilots just less experienced than pilots? Also, does the navigator know how to fly the plane in the unlikely event that something should happen to the pilot and copilot? Thanks!

  3. What a guy. I’ll bet he didn’t have a wife or kids when he performed that maneuver. . . did he say it’s an absolutely ‘non-hazardous’ maneuver? You could see the altitude lost in the flip in the video . . Wow.
