A King in check from a Flying Rook, Flying Bishop, or Flying Queen might be able to get out of check by moving an elevator, depending on the situation. For example:<P> White: K2a1<BR> Black: K4a8, Q3a8<BR> elevator shafts: a1 on Level 3, a2 on Level 3, all others on Level 1<BR> White to move.<P> White can get out of check through E2a1U3, E2a2U3, or E4a2D3, in addition to the standard K2b1 or K2b2.
