Aeroplanes built at that time were fairly robust. A Varsity was barrel rolled by a student and it was unknown until his co-pilot, a junior student, let it slip at a late hour in the bar.

They inspected the aircraft and if they looked very closely they could see the ripples in the top skin of the mainplane.

One scrapped student; one scrapped Varsity.
