To best perform this maneuver the wingman needs to keep sight of the leader. If your simulation offers a side view option, the wingman can fly the whole maneuver from this view. If this option is not available, the maneuver can be flown in the wing formation with the wingman slightly behind and to the side of the leader. In this manner the wing-man can maintain sight of the leader during the whole maneuver.
- Start side by side from one end of the area. (1)
- When the middle of the reviewing area is reached, the leader should start a loop and the wingman should follow. (2)
- Both planes should stay together and finish their loops at the same time. (3)
