I believe a SHIT load of investers and big wigs were there, along with the execs.

I heard he also buzzed them all.
Caminante Nocturno
For the last line.
I have the series this is from on VHS. Have not seen them in years, think I will go back and watch them now.

Except for the whole not having a VCR part.
I don't need to watch this to 5-star it. Rolling a 707? You get five stars, automatically.
Yes and yes.

-2 for the bad video quality - you really can't SEE the barrel roll all that well.
+100 for actually barrel rolling a 707.

Fuck YES
Too easy.

Menudo con queso
Wow, I didn't know Jimmy Stewart was a test pilot as well as an actor. Talk about a renaissance man.

Wiki: "A shy child, Stewart spent much of his after school time in the basement working on model airplanes, mechanical drawing, and chemistry all with a dream of going into aviation. But he abandoned visions of being a pilot when his father insisted that instead of the Naval Academy he attend Princeton University."

Hell yeah.
I like how he acts like it's all easy. What balls.

"yeah, I rolled it. No big deal."

Do they make test pilots like this anymore? The kind who are just like: "Yeah, it looks like this shit is within the technical tolerances of the plane, so fuck it...I'll do it. Multiple times."
Syd Midnight
For every test pilot like this there were probably 10 who died, modern regulations probably prevent them from allowing test pilots to engage in constant badass stunts until only the best few are left, like back in the 50s.

"...Just don't do it anymore."
I thought it said Tex WATSON barrel rolls a 707.
He sounds like Dana Carvey's impression of Tom Brokaw
