The Immelmann

This maneuver is also known as the vertical half loop and the roll off the top. It is basically the opposite of the split which we covered earlier. You can use this move to gain altitude while bleeding off speed and reversing your direction. You should come out of the maneuver heading 180 degrees away from your original heading.
