Recovery requires from one to two turns simultaneously placing the stabilizer to about 0° deflection and the rudder to the full anti-spin position. Wing fence development for the 6-3 wing in March 1955. Above, the short fence outboard of the fuel tank was very near the final design. Note the two mini-fences tested inboard of the drop tank. (NAA) A marked increase in rotational velocity occurs after the controls are placed in the recovery positions during this second type of spin. The number of turns required to affect recovery after the application of recove ry controls depends on the presence of external tanks and the amount of fuel carried in them.
A good rule 30 of th umb is to never find yourself in this situation by never trimming into a turn. INVERTED SPINS Inve rted spins might occur if the ai rplane should stall during the inverted portion of a maneuver. The inverted spin can be recognized by a roll from an inverted position over to what appears to be a normal 45° dive during each turn . Recovery can be made at any time by neutralizing the controls and flying the airplane out of the spin at the time that it is upright. Spins with drop tanks installed are for all practical purposes, identical to clean airplane spins except that if rudder is not purposely applied as the airplane stalls in an accelerated turn, the airplane tends to perform a snap roll in the opposite direction of the turn.
