Ballsy fucker. Wouldn't want to be around if someone tried that with a plane with a few hundred cycles on it's wings. He probably took a year's service life off it with that stunt.

I like how, at the beginning of Zed's posted video, there is a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen that reads - "Flown by Boeing test pilots. Do not attempt."

Probably didnt over stress it....im sure it was a test flight with low fuel load and no cargo load
Absolutely stressful, but those guys are not going to put their lives too far out on a limb.
The ride in a big ole blumber bus like that has to be unique. I would imagine it to be smoooooth, compared to a shaky, nimble fighter, designed for such a stunt.

This is putting a fighter to it's max. stress !! This gets wild at the 3 min mark.
Some of these maneuvers were a death knell only a few years back.
