Problem A. 538. (May 2011)

A. 538. In the 3-dimensional hyperbolic space there are given a plane \mathcal{P} and four distinct lines a1, a2, r1, r2 in such positions that a1 and a2 are perpendicular to \mathcal{P}, r1 is coplanar with a1, r2 is coplanar with a2, finally r1 and r2 intersect \mathcal{P} at the same angle. Rotate r1 around a1 and rotate r2 around a2; denote by \mathcal{S}_1 and \mathcal{S}_2 the two surfaces of revolution they sweep out. Show that the common points of \mathcal{S}_1 and \mathcal{S}_2 lie in a plane.
