Is this the same guy who once rolled a commercial airliner, maybe 707 or some such, (with company brass aboard) during one of them there 'show-what-it-can-do' flights?

Yep, that's him.

He is one of my personal heroes. I hope to become half the pilot he is. I will never be AS good as he is. Half will be more than enough.

Wonder if my Cessna will roll and not have the wings fall off?

That was pretty cool. Thanks, Philthy.

I found it odd that I did not pick up that it was Harrison Ford narrating. I usually notice stuff like that.

I'd go along with that, Grav.

Some years ago, Hampshire Police had one but it crashed killing the pilot and photographer he had on board.

Although slow speed handling was a main selling point, it would never have the flexibility of a helicopter.

No doubt cost was a limiting factor when it was chosen for police work.

Looks like something James Bond would steal from an evil genius and fly away with.

No seats? Do we all have to stand and hold straps now?

No straps, they'll pack you in tight enough that nobody can fall over.
And if you have to pee, just open a window.

I thought, wow, what a crazy drone. But they're just illustrating the nose cannon.
