AIR FORCE T-38 TRACK INTERMEDIATES
CHAPTER 6
Tactical Formation, Lead is responsible for heading, Two is responsible for the formation
spacing. If there is any doubt in the formation about which way Two is going, Two will
broadcast intentions "Two is going low." Lead should concentrate on holding altitude to give
Two a predictable platform.
The Cross Turn
The Cross Turn (Figure 6-10) provides a 180-degree reversal option while resetting formation
spacing. Flight path deconfliction is key in the Cross Turn and this will be the Wingman's
primary responsibility.  Two will maintain relative vertical positioning unless Lead directs
otherwise e.g. "Vapor, Cross Turn, Two go high/low."
Lead: "Knights Cross Turn."
Wing: No response required.

The Cross Turn
Procedure
Once the Cross Turn is commanded by Lead, unless otherwise directed, Wing maintains
relative positioning above or below Lead's turn plane. Both aircraft will execute a Tactical turn
for 180 degrees, Two will keep sight of Lead and is responsible for flight path deconfliction,
Lead is responsible for heading. Two will pick up Tactical Formation on the appropriate side
once the formation rolls out in the opposite direction. Due to turn radius the lateral separation at
rollout may be wide if the original spacing was correct. The Lead may direct a Shackle to
correct spacing as shown in Figure 6-9A.
