Yes, it can be done, but why? Looks like it came very close to being viewed on the epic fail video site. Glad to see a lot of precautions were taken and all involved came thru ok.

I have flown with more than one sim. pro. who couldn't fly his, or on occasion, her way out of a wet paper bag. If the shoe don't fit, don't wear it. I suspect Brendan and Alex and the sort would not do what they do without a Go-Pro camera, and the inspiration of U Tube and Jackass. If you care to question my credentials, hit 857DN on 10-30 SNA-AUS.The weather was entertaining, and for the first time in my career SWA said, we'll follow them.

If you don't want to waste your time - the idiotic, Darwin poking, talentless act is accomplished quite horribly at the 3:20 mark. They tried to tempt fate even more with that horrendous takeoff at 4:20.
