There's another manoever that the super-manoeverable aircraft
US/European and the Russian SU-27/30/33/35/etc series) demonstrate - but
don't know what the name is.  It's got to do with pointing the nose of
aircraft in a different direction than the direction of flight, without
changing the actual flight vector.  So, the aircraft can point it's
say, 15 deg vertically and 5 deg to the port, to get a better firing
position for missiles or guns, but not change the actual direction
