Yep, was once in a friend’s biplane west of Austin TX.
He made sure everyone who sat up front got to see a lot
of cows on the ceiling. I wonder if a 737 can do a
vertical stall?


Well, we do stall the 737 deliberately in flight testing but not in a
vertical position. Not my job, but I’ve seen movies of some of the more
interesting flight tests, including a 747 stall! Just watching the movie
you can feel it in your stomach when you see one suddenly drop a few hundred
feet before it’s (very) quickly restarted.
