If a plane "rests" 3-4 seconds between banks then this is due to pilot input.
But as these manoeuvers are in multiple plains then there is no guarantee that the plane will be straight and level I never ever stated "Strait and Level" at any point in this discussion. The plane can be climbing, diving, or not, as the case maybe. at any point as the apex of one plain of manoeuver may not (and is likely not to ) be at the same point as the apex in the other plain Yes, this is certainly true. More importantly, it is almost certainly going to be the case! But the point of view also changes at the shooter tracks the target. It is from the shooter's point of view that we are concerned. The intersection of the various planes of maneuver is transectioned by the bullet stream and all we are conserned with the the dificulty of putting those bullets on that target!
