    I guess it has to do with vertical movement of the aircraft, simmilar to the movement of a yo-yo. When you're doing low yo-yo, you dive first, and when you reach high speed, you sort of bounce upwards (like a yo-yo).

    I thought that was just a legend.

    Isn't Noritake a Japanese name, anyway?

    S!

    Yep, and is pretty hard to explain how is done since Noritake had a very hard time to speak in English

    The sig is OK
    Limits are 500x200 40kByte

    LOL I thought it was just called after the Yo-Yo - it's an up-down movement afterall, but hey I like the Chinese pilot version better

    Any link ?

    nm Found one

    Hmm they all refer to a Capt. Holland (RAF) as the source (from Shaw's Fighter Tactics)... I'm not convinced realy

    Yeah, I think that's a quote from Robert Shaw's book on fighter combat? I don't believe it's true though.

    Noritake is a Japanese name and not Chinese I think it's just supposed to be a funny story.

    Try to find information on Yo Yo Noritake without the line: "he was quite devoid of English." and that a Yo Yo is difficult to explain etc. It's definitley a joke that has slowly become a legend

    That's exactly what I said when this subject last came up. And hardly "well-known"!!

    I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!
