Reverse Half Cuban 8
How to fly it: A Reverse Half Cuban 8 is performed thus… Fly straight and level and enter the maneuver by commencing a 45 degree climb, point ‘A’ in the picture above. After a couple of seconds climbing, use ailerons to smoothly roll through 180 degrees to invert the airplane, point ‘B’, and use up elevator to perform what is, in effect, the back half of an inside loop, point ‘C’.
Fly the airplane out of the loop and return to straight and level (point ‘D’) in the opposite direction to that which you entered the maneuver.
