airplane trivia question of the day

And now for a bit of physics trivia related to my last flight...

Is it possible for an airplane to fly backwards? By that I mean, let's say you're standing outside your house, look up at the sky, and there's an airplane that looks like it's passing over you tail first.

If it's even possible, what does it mean?

What types of airplanes could do this?

How long could an airplane sustain this configuration?

What do you think's going through the pilot's mind?

Winner gets a virtual high-five, and possibly a cookie. If you are an actual pilot you must wait 12 hours before answering.
