    There actually have been barrel rolls performed on airliners, several with some consequences. Fellow I knew was an investigator, and told me of one or two, one involving a flames-out over the Pacific where the plane dropped from something like 35,000 feet to lower than 5,000 before they got it running again. Made the news. And the passengers didn’t know …

    Good morning all, I have never posted, but have been reading this strip and all of your comments for months. Great community here. BTW, I dont think Calvin can be making any letters in the first three panels.. an “L” would go in the opposite direction and if it was a “T” in the third panel, then the letter in panel two would have to be an “S” which it clearly is not.. lol I know, maybe I am thinking too hard, but it was driving me NUTS!

    @Rise22==Maybe your mom and are neighbors. I live in city with pilot training base and am almost under the flight path. One plane crash (no casualties/pilot baled) was one mile from my house. Years ago city built grade school on land where a crash occurred, also less than a mile from my house. Only salvation on noise problem is they return to base at dark.

    Having done a barrel roll or two (not in an airliner), I can tell you any passengers WOULD know. Aside from loking at a vertical horizon or looking up at the ocean and down at the sky (depending where you are in the maneuver), there would be a couple of G’s involved. Unless it is done very quickly (probably faster than the plane could roll), the enginese shouldn’t flame out.

    However, there is a well documented case of a Boeing Test Pilot rolling one of their airliners over Lake Washington.

    Being first and $10 will buy you a $5 cup of Starbucks.

    I was driving on a narrow sparsely-traveled state highway in the backwoods of Kershaw County SC one day, and I heard something behind me. As I looked in the mirror, two A-10’s from Myrtle Beach AFB (when it was there) swooped over me at tree-top level, doing a practice tank-kill run. I ducked my head, in the car, low enough to see the second one waggle his wings as they climbed up again. Very, shall we say, exciting.

    While doing some work on the main Dallas Naval Air Station, they switched to the shorter NW/SE runway where the approach was right over the duplex we were renting. Many’s the night, with landing lights illuminating our whole bedroom, I felt like they were pre-spinning their wheels on our roof prior to touchdown.

    dflak, a properly executed barrel roll should be a steady state 1g maneuver. An aileron roll, or a snap roll would be a different story. The fact it was only a 1g roll is one thing that saved Tex Johnsons butt from the big wigs at Boeing when he rolled the Dash 80.

    Looking at the sequence of footprints, he had to have started with “Hey” and ended with “Roll” and then walked around to the side. On a couple of the words he would have had to retrace his steps to get on to the next word.

    This is important to figure out in the grand scheme of things!! LOL

    So, does the winner of the “last comment” competition need to post their comment before the next day’s comic appears? Otherwise, theoretically, someone could post a “last” comment here for January 26th several days from now; but it seems like that would be sort of like cheating.

    The comments are not on the same time-space continuim that we are I have posted and then refreshed to find that my comment was posted 5 minutes ago. Only to hit refresh two minutes later to find another comment before mine that wasn’t there before and that my comment was only posted 2 minutes ago.

    So, considering that and the fact that eventually the tracking changes to about an hour ago, etc. Who is to say that someone couldn’t comment at 15 minutes after turnover and claim they posted last the previous day?

    Or maybe they will post last in our time and show up third to last in GoComics time?
