Terry, I had a partner that used to do hammerheads in an Onan powered Q1,
and all this at low level. On day he almost killed himself doing one, as
opposed to all the other times, and just got back elevator authority in time
to level off at 50 feet. He was finally convinced he didn't need to be doing
any of that anymore. Ted

No problem, Mike. Just wanted to keep the rookies in the clear. I haven't
mastered the "Lumchevak", "Checkoslavak" (or how ever you spell it) myself.
I am getting a little Christian Eagle time. Wouldn't even think of
like that in a Q. I know only one truly insane test pilot type who HAS done
a tail slide in a Q-200, but it scared him so bad he refuses even minor
in a Q now. The thought the good olde FAA considers a 90 degree bank acro!
