My buddy Termite tells me that taildraggers will do this to ya.
Something about the center of gravity being behind the main landing gear, and when you use the brakes, the airplane flips over. I'm told that such a stunt ain't good for the airplane, or the pilot.
It's always interested me, because "back in the day" airplanes didn't have tricycle gear and everyone was apt to ground-loop an airplane. I'm sure that they cover it in pilot training, and I'm sure that it used to be a lot more common than it is now.
