Not sure that is accurate Pontius. The speed involved off the top of the loop would be low enough to allow reasonable stick pressure. As I recall, it only became a real problem above about 360 knots. Would the hydraulic failure warning horn have given time to abandon the manoeuvre before the controls reverted to manual? Mind you it is some years since I was instructing on the Hunter! Maybe a Hunter QFI would like to remind us?
