The three "Flying Dutchman" flying coasters are nearly identical, save the ending maneuvers.  Firehawk's ending is the same as Batwing at Six Flags America.  They conclude with two in-line twists and a face-down, descending right helix that passes through about 450 degrees.  The first "Flying Dutchman" built, Stealth, opened at Paramount's Great America and is 570 feet shorter than the other two rides.  It ends with two corkscrew loops and a simple 90 degree turn toward the station.
