One of my colleagues, Jez, is an accomplished pilot and owner of a Pitts S-2A aerobatic biplane. Last Saturday he was generous enough to take myself, Rama and Mike up for a spin - giving us a quick lesson in basic aerobatics and scaring the living shit out of us. The whole experience was exhilarating, especially as Jez actually let us perform barrel rolls and loops after some instruction.

Jez stuck a GoPro camera on the front of the plane and filmed my reaction to the experience. The condensed version (along with the soundtrack that was playing in my head) is as follows:
