    Mainly the Tempests were assigned the duty, and they would dive on the Buzz Bomb, get very close to it and tip their wingtip over and flip the bomb into the ground...

    I used to own a training card that had model pictures and a diagram for that manuever, but have lost it in the many moves I have done. It was a fairly simple manuever, just took timing and some nerve.
