I was at Oakington a couple of courses after the attempted Varsity barrel roll. We understood the pilot chickened out when inverted and it was the co-pilot who closed the throttles when the a/c was heading vertically down which reduced the rate of speed increase and reduced the height loss during the pull through. Hearsay I know! Can anyone confirm?
