    So, a guy decides to see if various aircraft in MS Flight Simulator can actually fly inverted. He tries with some planes that we know can actually fly inverted, like the Phantom F-4 and the Boeing 707, as well as some planes that we don't know can fly inverted. Like an MD-80 and the Concorde. The dude's Swiss and his accent is a little strange, but you'll definitely want your audio on for it.

    I remember in the movie "Flight" pilot Denzel Washington had to fly inverted or something and hilarity ensued!
