The Bomb Burst
This maneuver is normally performed with four or five aircraft, but you can get the feel of it with two.
- Two planes start at opposite ends of the reviewing area. (1)
- Fly towards each other head-on. As you get close to each other, both pull up into a 90-degree climb (straight up), belly to belly. (2)
- On the leader's command both pilots pull back on the stick until the inverted position is reached, then roll out into normal flight. (3)
