My take on this is that an airplane in a 1G roll would follow the same
path as any other object.
Imagine your in space. A 1G roll would be a perfect circle with a
constant 1G acceleration.
Now bring that path into the Earth's gravity well. Now the 1G roll is
all messed up by the Earth's 1G. How can we fix that? Just like the
Vomit Comet does, by accelerating down at 9.8m/s^2. Superimpose a roll
on top of a parabolic descent and you have the path of a theoretical
airplane in a 1G roll.
I don't think there is a plane that could actually perform this maneuver
Obviously, the quicker you can roll, the easier it would be, but
essentially it would be impossible to complete a constant 1G roll back to
S&L. You would have to end up in a nose-down attitude in order to
maintain 1G while inverted. The greater your roll rate, the less time
you'll need to maintain positive G while inverted, and hence the nose
won't need to drop as far. The closest you're going to get to this is a
simple aileron roll where you start nose high... but then you've pulled
more than 1G to get the nose in to that position!
The fine art of whacking the cr*p out of an electronic device to get it to
