Spinning the plane is one way to make it flash, others recommend looping the plane. It all depends how the plane does it, so it's important to try it out before it's needed.
If I lose sight of one my full-house planes, I simply apply full landing crow, i. e. flaps all the way down, ailerons up a bit (depending on the individual plane). This slows the plane and settles it into a slight nose-down descend. This buys time to search the sky. The longest it's taken me to re-aquire a glider this way was an eternity of probably 5 seconds.
