WHY????I'm also a real-life pilot with twin ratings.In real life, this piece of acrobatics has never been done. It is much discussed by local jocks, but we would all be arrested.Best plane for this would be a MUDRY CAP-10B. However, all I do is poop around BC in a Beech 1900 or a DH Beaver.Now I can do it in FS2002.My brother flew an XFJ-2 Fury in Korea.We are all flying screw balls.My uncle totalled two Bonanzas on approach, and walked away from both.Why??????? Why you say???? Indeed!Because it's there! Just like Mount Everest!Boys: put down your pipes & claret. Try to be young again.Kindest regardsvrystaat!
