What's a Chandelle?

chandelle_planeChandelle: (shan-dell) an aviation term used to describe a 180-degree change in direction and an increase in altitude. This maneuver is a classic test of aircraft performance and pilot skill. As in wine making, it requires a smooth touch on the "stick and rudder." World War I French aviators perfected the maneuver and described it as monter en chandelle, or "to climb around a candle."
