Yeah why doesn't Boeing do more exciting stuff like that. Of course, I'd really like to see them barrel roll a 737, and maybe fly it inverted past the crowds at an airshow. Whats the probability of that?
0 as Sandro said. A commercial airliner is not a fighter jet. There is no way you could fly one inverted for an extended period of time without a serious risk of an accident. Barrell roll won't happen either. Tex Johnston will probably be the only one in history to intentionally roll a commercial airliner. If Boeing were to crash an aircraft doing something stupid at an airshow and potentially kill scores of spectators, the backlash would be enormous.
