  hey damon, thanks for the interesting post.  re: how does a fly land on the
ceiling.  i thought i  remembered how they do it.  now i am not so sure.  i
know this was discussed at length by some RAF fighter pilots during the
battle of britain ( to let off steam). and after things quieted down they
proved how it is done by filming it and slowing down the film.  tim bastian
says they do it with a half loop.  i thought it was a half roll.  mike mays
says that any airman who can take off backwards should be able to do a half
snap.  lillberg will not comment.  maybe someone else knows.

                                                    bill  (dr. bill davis)
