adversary's plane and exploit it's weaknesses. You can be sure
that he knows yours.

unusual specimen, the Dual Heinkel 111.
Eight: High Yo-Yo
|If you're traveling too fast to turn on a breaking
target, the High Yo-Yo may save your opportunity for an effective
burst of fire. If your plane requires a wider turning radius, you
may be able to get a shot at the target. As the target begins to
turn sharply, pull up to climb and reduce your speed. Execute an
aileron roll in the same direction as the target's turn. Pull back
on the stick to drop inverted to position yourself for a Lead or
Lag Turn. Apply full throttle when in the tightest turn possible.

Tips for success:
- This is difficult maneuver to perform successfully, since it
requires good timing to get into the proper position during
- Maintaining site of the target may be difficult. You will
likely have to presume the target has continued it's breaking
- When climbing, you are making the trade: airspeed for
altitude. Your turn will be tighter, but you will slow down.
