@Darkhumour The pilot wasn't doing a loop, he was doing a stall. Actually, from how steep the pilot climbed to get the airplane to stall I would call it more of a Hump-dee (not the greatest thing to do in that airplane). From our veiwpoint of the backseat of the airplane, I am 99% sure he was flying either a Cessna 172 or a high performance Cessna 172. Both aircraft are not approved for aerobatics.
Now for my qualifications since I know someone is bound to question it. I am a certificated pilot and a competition aerobatic pilot. I have many hours flying airplanes like what you see in this video, including airplanes with the ability to go inverted.
Take it from me, at no point was the pilot trying to do a loop, he was entering into a stall; albeit, a grossly exaggerated one. Besides, making a loop doesn`t cause crap to float around like that. Most of the time you are positive G, meaning you are in your seat the entire time.
