Pilots at the Chicago Air and Water Show are doing a loop-de-loop. Similar to the experiences of roller coaster riders doing a clothoid loop, the pilots will experience varying G-forces during the loop. They will feel light at the top and heavy at the bottom. Further information about these experiences can be found at The Physics Classroom.
