Flying Camel spin

The Flying Camel has a spinning position like a regular camel, but the entry is more difficult.

The skater performs what looks like a waltz jump, then lands and begins spinning in the camel position. Like a waltz jump, the landing is on the right foot (counterclockwise spinners), which means that a normal flying camel spins in a "back camel" position.
