A pearl of wisdom from WWII

I recently came across a pearl of wisdom that supposedly was printed in a World War II primary flight training manual. This instruction described the control movements for recovery from each maneuver:

“If the airplane doesn’t recover, try moving the controls in the opposite direction.”

One can only hope that our elected “leaders” could possess such simple common sense. Dream on.
