CHAPTER FIVE
T-34C PRIMARY FORMATION FLIGHT TRAINING
Figure 5-1 The Emergency Chase Position
Formation Emergencies Lead. Once the lead change occurs the emergency aircraft needs to
execute the NATOPS procedures appropriate for the situation. Do not forget you have a
Wingman, not for Wingman consideration, but as an asset you can use to help you deal with the
emergency. When the emergency is under control, delegate tasks to the Wingman as
appropriate. For example, Wing can read the checklist over the radio, confirm the position of an
outlying field (OLF), conduct airborne damage or landing gear inspection, etc. Remember, as
the emergency aircraft, you need to execute your best single plane emergency procedures and be
directive to delegate tasks to your Wingman.
Formation Emergencies Wing. The one thing to remember as Wing when the aircraft in the
lead has an emergency is to keep your mouth shut unless absolutely necessary for safety of
flight. It is completely possible for the "over-helping" Wingman to distract Lead during this
critical situation. The best Wingman during an emergency is one that flies a solid Chase
position, observes for safety of flight issues (e.g., traffic, clouds, bailout altitudes, etc.), and
ensures Lead is executing a smart game plan. For instance, if Lead is not performing a PEL to
the nearest suitable runway, by all means notify him right away. Otherwise, as Wing you need to
"hang back," keep quiet, and give Lead a chance to use his training to deal with the situation.
