Check Out These 3 Awesome Aerobatic Maneuvers

Love aerobatics? So do we. Here are three impressive aerial stunts you can tell your friends about.

1) Double Hammerhead

Why do one hammerhead when two are twice as good? The double hammerhead is an impressive feat of aerodynamics and engine torque. Watch below as Sean Tucker tumbles his plane through the sky - the hammerhead action starts at 0:07.

2) Tailslide

Few airplanes can handle a tailslide, let alone a jet. While you probably won't get to see an SU-27 Flanker perform a tailslide (unless you're headed to Eastern Europe for summer vacation), it's still cool to watch. Check it out.

3) Lomcovak

Pronounced "LUM-sha-vak", this twisting and tumbling maneuver was invented by the Czech aerobatic pilot, Ladislav Bezak. While there are many varations of the Lomcovak, the basics are the same: a series of outside snap rolls and gyroscopic tumbling.
