FS2004 Boeing 367-80- [1280 x 960 jpg]
August 7th, 1955, the day of the Gold Cup race on Lake Washington Seattle, Tex Johnston performed a Barrel Roll maneuver with a Boeing 367-80 while spectators watched in amazement and fear. Then, to satisfy those who might have missed it the first time, he did it again…. Boeing’s president at that time, Bill Allen, asked Tex the day after at an “emergency board meeting why he did that and Tex replied “Selling the airplane. The airplane does not recognize attitude, providing a maneuver is conducted at one G.” Bill Allen replied, YOU know that, now WE know that… Don’t do it anymore....
