w:Max Immelman WWI German fighter ace. DCDuring TALK 04:35, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Weak keep, based on the Immelmann turn., a WW1 aerial maneuver used in combat, and named after him.--Dmol 09:28, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Delete aviator's name, and leave the turn named after him. Makes more sense this way, and etymology is obvious from the def..--Dmol 10:18, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Delete and clean up. Split the noun from the proper noun by etymology, with the noun etym citing the surname and, maybe, mentioning the person. Pingku 11:12, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
@Dmol: I neglected to make clear that this is an rfd-sense. The surname sense (proper noun) and the aerial maneuver (common noun) are not being challenged. DCDuring TALK 12:34, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Exactly the same as what Pingku said. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:19, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Delete RFDed sense; keep the rest. Equinox 22:32, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Hekaheka (talkcontribs) has acted on this discussion and removed the nominated sense. RFD-failed, striking. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:49, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
