The second video couldn't have been done in 'reverse' for very long. The F/A-18 can maintain positive fuel flow inverted for extended periods of time. The Tomcat can't.
The wed site I found that at stated that the F/A-18 pilot did get in trouble for that fly-by due to exceeding the amount of time he was allowed to fly inverted. Something about the dificulty in suppling the fuel pumps or pick ups for the engines.
Dangerous. Always good to see American tax dollars spent so well
Work Hard, Play Hard
I'm suprised the skipper that approved the first did put his boot in the *** of that piolt. that was way to close to the destroyer putting both ships in danger imo. Still both are pretty nice to see. Nothing beats the feeling watching though.
