Excellent catch and timing! Seen in Daily Newsletter!

I noticed the left aileron is down and the right is up, indicating a left bank. However, it appears that a spoiler is deployed on the right wing which would cause it to drop. Also, the rudder appears to be deflected slightly to the right. Was he in some trouble due to the deployed spoiler, or what else might be happening?

skyhawkrg, it's a right bank, not a left bank, probably just a standard hard bank to the right for the show.

Yes i would agree, he seems to have used the the spoiler to to increase the rate of bank. And the rude would make sense to keep the turn coordinated in this steep of a turn. Often you need rudder in the direction of your bank

My bad; I misread the ailerons and the direction of bank. Mea Culpa, I'm not a pilot, only a fan.

4 Jet engines? I like 4 jet aircraft but surely this aircraft is too small for the need of 4 jet engines similarity with AVRO RJ 100 types!
