Please Jack, don't make a forums post regarding the regiment before talking to your Commander ( me ).
Never seen this myself, as pilots have a strict procedure they must follow when taking off for any kind of transport. Maybe you had a non-pilot flying. In fact, the dropships are physically incapable of inverted flight. However if you do have an issue with pilots behaviour or the way they conduct themselves when i am not around, please come to me about it so i can address it properly.
Edit: Also go easy on Jack, he is younger than most on
