Oh, please do refer me to the location of the site or documentation that shows how much control input was being used in that clip... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Was that a wartime video, or some post war movie?

Movie. The "pilot" is John Belushi.

How much control input was needed and how much height he lost are both quite irrelevant. If it could roll that fast, then it could roll that fast, plain and simple.

I always loved that scene:

crew: "how many did you get?"

Belushi: "5"

crew: "confirmed?"

Belushi:"well, maybe 2"

With more control input (if available) it may roll faster, hence the question. It rolls faster in the game....

What's the trouble with that? In FB, P-40 rolls the same or better.

And, yes, the film is '1941'. I think it's a Spielberg or Lucas film -and a notorious commercial failure. The actor is John Belushi. Since some of you don't seem to know, I guess you're too old or too young. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Huh?It actually looks as if AEP P40 rolled twice fast as in the movie!

BTW love it when the guy flies with the canopy off.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I would say it rolled fast in that movie when you remember his air speed looked very low.
