С чем едят LOMCEVAK?



    Получил письмо из заморского города Чикаго:
    We finished the flight by performing landing practice. When we landed, we quickly refueled the airplane and took off for another training flight.
    This time he wanted to learn how to do tumbling maneuvers. We call one of the maneuvers a LOMCEVAK.

    Прошу прощения за мою некомпетентность! Возможно это должен знать каждый уважающий себя чел, но так получилось, что в нашей разведшколе нам не давали перевод этого слова...

    Что такое LOMCEVAK?


    Летучий галландец
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The name Lomcevak comes from Czech aerobatic pilot Ladislav Bez?k's mechanic, who at a 1958 airshow in Brno (Czechoslovakia) jokingly called his tumble manoeuvres "Lomcevaks" when asked by journalists what they were.
    Lomcevak, roughly translates into "headache" or "hangover". The expression "Lomcevak" originated from the Moravia region, famous for its Jelinek Slivovitz, a traditional Czechoslovakian alcohol, and is commonly used to describe the rotating motions of one who has had one too many.

    Maneuvre Description

    The Lomcovak is a freestyle family of maneuvres performed at airshows or in four minute frees. It is not in the Aresti catalogue and therefore may not be flown in competition.
    The maneuvre consists of tumbling the aeroplane through the pitch axis (end to end) while it travels in a lateral direction (wingtip to wingtip.)

    Flying technique

    Flying a Lomcevak will vary in technique from aeroplane to aeroplane and pilot to pilot. This is probably the most common technique described for a clockwise rotating engine. (?)
    Pitch up to the 45, simulatneously roll to the left with aileron and kick in full left rudder, then shove the stick full forward. The aeroplane should do about two full rotations before running out of energy. Neutralise all controls and the aircraft will recover with the nose down. Fly out of it and correct accordingly. It may be necessary to reduce the power when recovering in certain instances.
    This is generally the same technique used for a knife edge spin (up or down).

    У меня первая мысль была, что это название целого комплекса фигур. Обычно в переписке он фигуры строчными буквами пишет, а тут все заглавные. Думал абревиатура. А ларчик просто открывался... Всем спасибо! :pivo:
