Believe me, I know the many dangers out there in the world of flight and at my stage, even though I can be QUITE arrogant in this field, I would not try one of these manuevers w/out proper instructions from a pilot which are also unlawful in the area I live in. I am less than 3 or 4 miles from TPA and use a smaller airport's 152's for my training. First of all, it is not my plane, secondly, I wouldn't do anything like that to put anyone in danger. It generates quite a bit of stress on the aircraft.
The reason I wanted to bring it up is because, I absolutely love to hear thise "one time" stories, where, very respectable pilots have pulled a stunt like this. I have read numerous instructional books where the author warns the reader of the dangers and violations before going ahead and explaining the proper way to do it. There have only been 2 pilots out of about 25 who have claimed they have never tried this venture. But please, do not get the wrong idea. Stupidity and immaturity will lead to big problems anywhere, especially in the sky.
