Although yet to be confirmed with the Guinness Book of World Records, early reports claim air show pilot, Spencer Suderman has broken the world record for the most successive inverted flat spins at El Centro Naval Air Station.

Attaining an altitude of approximately 22,500 feet, Suderman rolled the aircraft and spun inverted a total of 81 complete rotations. The previous record holder was fellow air show pilot, Wayne Handley with 78 complete rotations conducted in April 1999.


Update: The Guinness World Record organization has confirmed Spencer Suderman now holds the official record on the highest number of consecutive inverted flat spins.
