Has anyone heard of this incident? Seems health 'problems' would be an understatement, or are all the pax on board 'model passengers', fastening their seat-belts even if the sign is off? Pax suffered +2.5G during the inverted phase.

If I am correct, the clip was taken from a news report from one of Singapore's TV channel.

That was in 2011, not 2001. See report on AvHerald http://avherald.com/h?article=4428f2f7&opt=0

You are said to be a good pilot when your take-off's equal your landings.

Quoting ecbomberman (Thread starter):

A properly flown barrel roll will have you very close to 1g for the entire duration of the manouver. If blindfolded, you would have had no idea about the inverted flight phase.

A quoted number - +2.5 - suggets that being pulled from the seat would not be a problem. A seated passenger, even unbuckled, can contain himself in seat with downward and sideways force quite well; 2.5 is a fair bit though - could lead to some discomfort and/or problems.

The light at the end of tunnel turn out to be a lighted sing saying NO EXIT
