Q400 hefty bank angle

Aircraft with actual passengers aboard will never exceed a 30 degree bank angle, like this guy is doing. Not so much for air safety as passenger comfort, although each aircraft does have a maximum bank angle specified in the operating handbook. Exceed it, and your wings stop producing lift.
