The plane is probably thinking: "They must have sold me to the air force or something..."
hahaha.
Great Capture!

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 1, 2012:
Is a Falcon banking like this possible, I do not know enough to say. What I do know is that it is on record, however, that a test pilot Tex, someone whose last name I forget, performed a barrel roll in a Boeing 707 prototype in late 1950s.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Thu March 11, 2010:
Hes looking out the window (how real pilots fly), flying off the attitude, not the AH.
Great skill to overcome the "G"s for this photo

A visitor from - posted Thu June 18, 2009:
Wow! With flight simulators we really can't feel what I'm sure you and the crew did. Great shot, congratulations!

A visitor from Thailand posted Sat April 4, 2009:
It's very difficult to take a photo with 2G+ environment (I ever did tried but failed to make them sharp and horizontal aligned). So, great job and 5 stars indeed!!

PS. It's easy to do this in simulator, but that's another story in the real life. I ever been hit by the 7G on Extra300, it was very difficult to raise up the hand.

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 17, 2009:
Hey, you spilled the coffee in the back!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 25, 2008:
Man, am I glad I didn't hire this guy to fly my Falcon.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sat August 30, 2008:
Nice shot, tried to do the same flying a 2000 as well, unfortunately pics are quite far from this quality. But we had a 90

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 28, 2008:
FS 2000/2004/whatever doesn't count for anything. Flying for real is far far more complicated. Either way, what a great shot. 5*****

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Sun December 23, 2007:
Not bad.

A visitor from Austria posted Mon August 6, 2007:
Nothing unusual! I flow like this lot of times....in FS 2000. :)

A visitor from Colombia posted Tue January 30, 2007:
That´s what it´s all about...

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Sat November 18, 2006:
Doesn’t look like a normal bank to me. Too steep, easy to enter a spin and stall a plane. I know how it feels making the normal procedure steep turns, therefore considering the Gs the photographer had to overcome to make this shot the photo is of good quality, very sharp. It’s also very informative. The instruments say the pilot is making a 60-65 degrees bank (it looks so to me).

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat October 7, 2006:
Bank angle limitation ??? What is it ?? Lokk at the instruments !!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 23, 2006:
This guy's gotta bad attitude!!!

Ex-fighter pilot.
. . . and I thought they only flew for Southwest!! :P

A visitor from Germany posted Thu April 13, 2006:
Great shot of a great flight maneuver... hope the cabin was "pax-less"!!

A visitor from Puerto Rico posted Thu March 9, 2006:
Is the pilot thinking of doing a barrel roll?(nice shot by the way)

A visitor from Nigeria posted Mon February 13, 2006:
Lovely performance by the pilot,i hope i get that brave someday, how was this picture taken , lovely picture

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 2, 2005:
There goes the China...

A visitor from Latvia posted Sat November 19, 2005:
Nice photo! The only one... I guess photographer sited on a normal position and made a shot. Then, later cropped photo and adjusted frame angle to horizon in order to get much more impression to the viewers. Isn't it? :-)

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Does he think he's flying a Falcon 2000 or a Fighting Falcon?! I've got to get me one of those.

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 13, 2005:
Nice picture. Gives a good perspective of the turn. No spills here, everything is glued with G forces. I'd say in this case about 2 G's.

A visitor from - posted Sat November 12, 2005:
Holy smokes!!! That looks like it would be fun!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Fri November 11, 2005:
I'm sure I'd be sick in this aircraft!!! :)

A visitor from Germany posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Wow! This is one of the most jaw-dropping photos I have ever seen!

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Neither PFD is parallel with the standby artificial horizon. There's quite a difference between them both.

A visitor from Austria posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Uuh! Who cares about artificial horizon indications not being parallel! Sometimes real flying is the goal in mind when good boys are at work!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Wow, what a great shot! You "feel" that hard left bank indeed while looking at the pic. Great!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Whoa! That is a super steep bank! I hope the photographer was strapped in tight! By the look of the picture, you'd almost be standing vertical on the wall of the cockpit!

A visitor from Pakistan posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Its like riding a roller coaster in high air! But ! But ! But ! any more banking beyond this and you'll be thrown spinning like a top !

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Hope there were no passengers on board, otherwise they would all have spilled their drinks and food and made a mess of the cabin.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri November 11, 2005:
I believe that the boss was very late!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 11, 2005:
I love the way you kept the ngle straight so we can see the real horizon.

Nick

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Action photo...it's very wonderfull...

A visitor from Greece posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Yikes!!!!
Sure hope there were no passengers aboard!!
I envy your photo moment.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Now thats a departure turn!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
GREAT shot, nice job keep that camera in line with the ground......bravo

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Its an excellent shot.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Hey, the artificial horizon in the PFD and the secondary aritificial horizon are not parallel!
Great shot BTW

A visitor from Malta posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Great picture!!I will sure vomit if I'm on board in that steep turn!!Good Job you really need to have strong arms for this shot!!

A visitor from France posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Nice to see that the shot is perfectly parallel to the horizon...really good job fabrice and..."vive les blagues et les frites belges"!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Notice the PFD screens are decluttered because of the extreme bank rate...

A visitor from Turkey posted Thu November 10, 2005:
"Bank angle! Bank angle!" That's an incredible turn!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 10, 2005:
The feeling of flying, the freedom to move in any direction in the three-dimensional space is very well illustrated in this photo.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Wow! That looks like one of my banks in Flight Sim, I didn't know you could actually do it!

A visitor from Austria posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Good Boys! Nice to notice that there are still some fine pilots out there having FUN!

A visitor from France posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Wow! Its not often that a professinal photographer has th epossibility to take pictures of those kind of situations. Nearly nobody has seen those turns from inside the cockpit. And if, there was no camera. And if, the photo didn't turn out that great... Congrafts to this amazing shot! Do some more if possible! :-)

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu November 10, 2005:
This is very great foto

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 10, 2005:
What an angle !!!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu November 10, 2005:
You need have strong arms to take photos like this one.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 10, 2005:
I wonder if this was an approved rate one turn haha

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu November 10, 2005:
And I thought only jet fighters can do such steep bank....a very nice shot indeed

A visitor from Venezuela posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Impressive shot!, this Dassault Falcon 2000 pilot demonstrates his skills to to fly this beauty.

A visitor from Greece posted Thu November 10, 2005:
I need a bag! And please hurry... Cant keep it in my stomach any more.... lol

A visitor from Poland posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Woooow! First time I've seen such a steep turn... I think it wasn't easy to take this photo... Very good job!!

A visitor from Spain posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Look at that fighter jet!. Bank is almost 60 degrees, speed 225 kt, power 75% and one notch of flaps is set.

A visitor from Austria posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Looks like fun!!! :)

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Really cool angle! That must have been FUN! I'm gonna NEED one of those Falcons soon! :^)

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Is this bank for real? Hard to believe!
