This Awesome Battlefield 1942 Stunt Probably Won't Be Possible In Battlefield 3

With all of the buzz surrounding Battlefield 3, I've been on a bit of a nostalgia kick for the series lately, looking up all sorts of information and videos on previous entries. A friend pointed me toward this insane stunt from DICE's first Battlefield game, 1942, which I've got to guess won't be possible in the upcoming sequel.

The video below shows off what those in the hardcore Battlefield 1942 community have come to call the "loop zook" - when you jump out of a plane in mid-loop-de-loop, shoot down an enemy plane with your bazooka, and land safely back inside your own plane as it comes back around. Realistic? Don't make me laugh. But so incredibly awesome? Hell yes.
