Default Landing - Overhead Break

Hello!


I recently learned how to do the overhead maneuver and it is so much fun!


Here's a tutorial that I hope will help new pilots join the pattern military style.

By the way, how do I make the Youtube thumbnail appear in the post?

Nice video, Mate! Short question: why do you fly the pattern clockwise? In every flightmanual I know the pattern is counterclockwise...

Not always. Lets use Nellis as an example. If 03R is the active landing RW as per ATC. The OHB would not be performed counterclockwise to cross over RW 03L due to possible exsisting AC using 03L. This is just one example..

@Steinsch Nice job. just a little high @ the roll out

ATC clears aircraft for the procedure with a specification of where to break and direction of traffic pattern. It could be right or left depending. The break may be at mid-field. But it may be over the numbers or elsewhere in order to separate traffic. This is also an approach which is safer for some aircraft with bad glide ratios. And in the US, it's an FAA procedure that can be requested (AIM 5-4 I think). I have flown the procedure as a flight of two civilian aircraft. It's a safe way to split up and land. Basically it's an upwind entry into the pattern.

The whole idea of the overhead is to bring in a flight together hauling ass (military birds have waivers for speed) and then split them up over the field within sight of each other and within the base air defense protection. Otherwise you would have guys strung out for miles at slow speed just begging to be shot down by a bandit or more likely small arms or manpads. Also, it makes it easier to recover several flights of aircraft as they are not all trying to sequence themselves 50 miles out.

I believe this procedure was developed during WWII. Then it was common for the enemy to follow you home. This how many 262's as well as allied planes were killed or nearly killed. Now it's used for safety and to maintain skills for carrier landings.

Take the part I highlighted red in your link, and then wrap it with the youtube tags. Example below, but remove the added space before the first youtube, and after the second youtube.

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with the term "roll out". Is it when the plane is downwind?
