    Is this a picture of the famous barrel roll the Boeing test pilot did with a 707 over the Gold Cup hydroplane race in Seattle back in the '50s ??

    Its the Boeing 367-80, aka the "Dash-80", the 707 prototype. Tex did the 1G barrel roll twice in both directions over Lake Washington.

    A 1G roll was easy on the airplane, I would have liked to seen a loop.

    Actually, it's Johnston, with a "t".

    One of the classic airplane moments, but until now I never knew there were any photos from inside the plane. Anyone know where there are more of them?

    Tex Johnston is a legend 'round these parts, but really any airliner should be able to do this. Not that I'd want to be in one when it did...

    Good 'ol Tex! No one has the balls to do stuff like that anymore. FAA, terrorists, and just plain stupid people ruin it for the rest of us.
