T-34C PRIMARY FORMATION FLIGHT TRAINING
CHAPTER THREE
Pursuit Curves. Pursuit curves are used to describe Wing's closure as he maneuvers relative to
Lead. For example, if Lead is in a turn and the nose of Wing's aircraft is pointed ahead of Lead's
aircraft, closure is generated, ultimately resulting in Wing passing in front of Lead; we call this
"lead pursuit" (Figure 3-25). On the other hand if Wing points the nose of the aircraft behind
Lead while in a turn, then closure on Lead should slow and Wing should pass behind Lead, this
is "lag pursuit" (Figure 3-26). Finally, if Wing points the nose of the aircraft directly at Lead,
only a small amount of closure will be created and we call this "pure pursuit" (Figure 3-27).
