Descending at ~10.000fpm isn't it an aproximate rate of free-fall?
Could you relate this very situation with a 0-G maneuver (on the A300-0G).
Actually, it's a bit quicker than a parachutist at terminal velocity in free fall - but a parachutist at terminal velocity is experiencing 1 G, not 0 G, (they are effectively lying on a bed of air - but internally feeling the same as lying on a real bed.)
