Go figure? ??  Hey, it's a neat looking aircraft. While stationed in 
England in the fifties,
I saw the RAF precision flying team in Hawker Hunters doing a show.  I 
remember seeing one go
straight up rolling all the way.  I was told they called the pilot 
"Corkscrew" Phipps.

OT: Was glad to see the Etrich Taube was included; one of my favorites.
