We study natural variations of the structure existing on the unit tangent sphere bundle of any oriented Riemannian 4-manifold . We find a circle of structures for which the induced metric is the usual one, the so-called Sasaki metric, and prove how the original structure has a preferred role in the theory. We deduce the equations of calibration and cocalibration, as well as those of pure type and nearly-parallel type.
