I guess it has to do with vertical movement of the aircraft, simmilar to the movement of a yo-yo. When you're doing low yo-yo, you dive first, and when you reach high speed, you sort of bounce upwards (like a yo-yo).

The High Yo-Yo (first perfected by the well-know Chinese fighter pilot Yo-Yo Noritake)

I thought that was just a legend.

Isn't Noritake a Japanese name, anyway?

Yep, and is pretty hard to explain how is done since Noritake had a very hard time to speak in English http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The sig is OK
Limits are 500x200 40kByte

LOL I thought it was just called after the Yo-Yo http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - it's an up-down movement afterall, but hey I like the Chinese pilot version better http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Any link ?

nm Found one http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hmm they all refer to a Capt. Holland (RAF) as the source (from Shaw's Fighter Tactics)... I'm not convinced realy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yeah, I think that's a quote from Robert Shaw's book on fighter combat? I don't believe it's true though.

Noritake is a Japanese name and not Chinese I think it's just supposed to be a funny story.

Try to find information on Yo Yo Noritake without the line: "he was quite devoid of English." and that a Yo Yo is difficult to explain etc. It's definitley a joke that has slowly become a legend

Yep, just a joke http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Noritake definitely sounds Japanese.

I thought the same thing yesterday when I saw his sig so I checked its ok
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Size limits apply!!!

Unfortunately signature sizes have got out of hand for some users.

Therefore the following rules will apply for signatures. Could everyone please check their signatures and ensure they meet these guidelines.

- Limited to one image per signature or a short text.
- 500 wide x 200 high maximum dimensions
- 40KB file size maximum
- 3 lines of additional text <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

As far as the Yo Yo goes I think your right about the vertical movment of your aircraft is why it got named that. I haven't researched it and have never heard of the guy you mentioned above. Now I'm curious too.

Some links no answers but some good training stuff.

Noritake is listed in the original IL2 manual as the creator of this maneuver. I can't explain a Chinese pilot with the Japanese name, though.

Yes, Baldie . . . I know that I have a hook in my mouth http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Maybe he was a Japanese fighting for the Chinese. Now, there's different types yo yo-yo's. There's the high yo-yo, low yo-yo and there's also a turning yo-yo, again, high and low. Maybe his last name is Japanese but his first name is Chinese. Yo-yo Ma? Anyone? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'd say this sounds like the most sensible explanation...

Your wrong all of you!!

This manouver got its name by the rear gunners
yelling: YO!! everytime the pilot entered this manouver!

First up: - YO!
Then down: - YO!

Name is born: YO! YO! - later YO-YO.

Heads-on firing was not a safe practice after all ?
Jussi Huotari: It was not specially recommendedÔ.....
And later, as the Russians were armed with 20mm cannons, it was unwise to meet them heads-on
