These claims are even more fun than that Chemtrails nonsense.

While its true that a B757 or B767 can take off, fly an FMS planned route and land without a pilot at the controls (among my other attributes, I'm a B757/B767 rated avionics engineer - trust me) the idea that its control systems have inbuilt limits that cannot be over-ridden by a pilot are pure fantasy. Perhaps the author is thinking of Le Airboose?

As to pulling 5Gs in a turn, are there any B757 pilots out there who have tried steep turns and can comment?

I mean really steep turns...
