World’s Record Loop De Loop
We, as a species, have entirely lost the ability to simply point a camera at anything to capture what’s going on. If it’s not half-out-of-frame jump cuts and little bits of visual dross stitched haphazardly, accompanied by a dimwit screaming the whole time, we’re entirely unable to be entertained or edified.
We can, however, loop de loop the hell out of the third rock from the sun.

It’s just a matter of minimum speed, easily calculated, though you want to get it right with a car.
Piper Cub and sim: dive to 120, pulling back on power to avoid overspeeding the engine, pull up and add full power, pull power off when you see the horizon again (you don’t need power for downhill).
There’s no penalty for getting it wrong, though, in an airplane.
But it’s not difficult either way.
