Hi!

Watching the video it seems that the pilot tries to do a looping, and the wing collapses at the begining of the maneuver. It is hard to tell if the pilot is flying beyond the g factor limit, or if the design is not robust enough?

The aircraft is the Archaeopetrix and the company is still in busines, so it would seem that the pilot is to blame. Do you think that it is too easy to go beyond the g limit, without being aware, when doing a pull up in any aircraft?

Cheers,

Oriol
