Flight maneuvers performed by aircraft engaged in close air combat. The aircraft cross each other like two halves of a scissor, then reverse into each other and try to make the other overshoot. The aircraft normally end up doing low-speed maneuvers, and thus greater pilot skill is required to handle the aircraft at these speeds.
