Looping a T31?

Dave Unwin asked
Olddog Why not? I wouldn't loop ours today, but this was 60 years ago.
Vne 70kts - with the drag of the Cadet Mk3 - I'm afraid not. There was some spirited flying by the instructors on hangar flights for cadets who after A&B were found not to have done the 20 launches 'required', and to keep the books straight, formative experiences, but then again we didn't have enough experience to know what was sensible.
