Visual Basic program "VB BHmerger"  Display  BH #3 = 10
 Picture 16 with Phi = 150 shows a situation were the two large BH's collide.
This is more like a head on collision. The two BH's do not spiral together.
 Picture 22 with Phi = 210 also shows a situation were the two large BH's collide.
Also this case is like a head on collision. The two BH's do not spiral together.
 Picture 13 with Phi = 120 BH #3 does not merge and is ejected.
The same with picture 28 and phi = 280
 Picture 15 with Phi = 140 is the most spectacular.
The name of this picture is "Synchrone Dancing of two Black Holes"
What happens in this situation is that BH#1 (Black one) and BH#3 (Green one) become a Binary pair. BH#3 is captured. BH#3 swirls around BH#1 thereby influencing the trajectory of BH#1, which makes many turns. The interesting thing is that at each turn of BH#1 (in black) also BH#2 (in red) makes the same turn. This gives the image that the two BH's are dancing synchrone.
This dancing stops when BH#3 collides with BH#1.
 Picture 32 with phi = 310 also shows this behaviuor, but less clear.
