    Yup, the original Boeing 707 (their first jet) was barrel-rolled by their chief test pilot, Tex Johnson.

    Here's the clip.

    In it he claims to do a chandelle (not a roll), but the actual footage shows the roll.

    I don't know of any reason an airliner couldn't be flown upside down, except for legal issues w/ the FAA.
