	I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me here.  On a
recent flight a friend and I were musing on whether a commercial jet (In
this case it was a DC9) could handle a barrel roll. Now I know there are
all sorts of factors to consider like at what speed, and perhaps how fast
the roll itself was executed, but I would appreciate any input anyone
might have.

			Thanks,
