From what I understand, I was only a little girl, The Pilot James Ryan (my father), was doing a series of test flights, during one of them he was supposed to see how high vertically and under what conditions he could fly when he was forced to make a decision, either crash or try to do the loop, he was able to successfully do the loop.

It's been a while, but as I remember it we would fly for 2.5 hours. Empty with a 20 minute fuel reserve.
