I wonder how many people will be trying the "hard boot" turn in game.

...you mean 180 turn?

 

That's one sick move. It's like car drifting, but it's on the air, and done by airplane.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

I think the narrator referred to it as "hard boot"..I could be wrong

Yes, narrator does say, "Voss will boot hard right rudder and spin his machine around 180 degrees."

This type of 180 can be used to get out of a narrowing canyon with mountains in front and both sides. By pulling the throttle back to idle, full flaps (drop the gear if retractable) and pitching up the nose and just before a stall (stay above stall speed), kick in full left rudder, then at the end of the 180, full power, flaps up/gear up and you get a maneuver such as this. It will save your life when you can't climb over or turn around without slamming into a mountain. If many pilots would have known this maneuver in real life, they could have survived such a situation.

 

An FAA Check Pilot showed it to me on my Flight Instructor Biennial review...cool maneuver.

In world of warplanes, you would just stall out. Haha, this is a nice video. I enjoyed watching it.

That's right. They did not not add asymmetrical thrust (P-Factor) in the game. Whereas the prop on the down stroke (right side) has more lift (pull) than the upstroke (left side/pull)...it's even both sides, so you can't do this in the game.

I also sew it the dogfights think it was either history or military channel not sure, but, yes this one of my favorites, there is another one about a dog fight in mig alley I think during the Korean conflict not sure but it was another good one, the show dogfights was a good show I wish they would bring it back, I just voted your post one up. Thanks for showing this video, again one of my favorites dogfight

My stepdad died training a pilot to do "canyon turns" in the rocky mountains. Essential for any bush pilot.

 

Great video,gave me goosebumps!

It's important to read about the main players from this event. I know Wikipedia can't be fully trusted, but apparently these gentleman suffered severe mental trauma from these dogfights. They weren't as hardened as we might think, and most of them were not much more than 20 years old. it was also sad to read that those that survived it, were killed within a year or less.

I need to correct the "throttle to idle" to enough throttle to hold you above the stall and during the quick turn, then once completed....full throttle, flaps up/gear up. Sorry about your step dad...

Ya,it was a shame and they said equipment failure so it was not pilot error. My mother sold her plane and never flew again after that.

That sounds like you are describing a low speed wingover.
