Quoting Max Q (Reply 1): Unnecessary, unprofessional and basically sadistic.
Not to mention, totally her own fault! Sophie did not get sick til after SHE had been in control and did a triple barrel roll. While of course nothing can be ruled out with television, I don't think it was creative editing that made it look like she made herself sick.
From what I've seen, and I only saw the last 7 or 8 minutes skipping the ground part, the pilot explained what he was gonna do before every manouver, except for one hard left turn which he made after Sophie mentioned she had ear pains.
At one point the pilot asked "you want to pull 9G", reminding her gently this would likely be her last chance. She answered with "yeah, the vomit is out anyway. Just wait a second for me to clean up". My kind of girl!
