AIR FORCE T-38 TRACK INTERMEDIATES
CHAPTER 6
Lead: "Knights, 45 right."
Wing: No response required.
Procedure
If the direction of turn is away from the Wingman, the Wingman will initiate the turn as soon
as the Lead transmits the radio call. The leader will delay the turn until the Wingman's heading
approaches the new desired heading, then Lead will bank into the Wingman as a signal to roll out
of the turn. The Lead will then maneuver to the other side of the flight by crossing over or under
Wing and turning to the new heading. The Wingman will make the initial turn for no more than
45 degrees of heading change. Once Lead is established on the new heading, the Wingman will
reestablish the tactical position. If the turn is into the Wingman, the Wing should maneuver as
required to achieve the tactical position on the other side of Lead, either by delaying the turn
until Lead crosses behind the Wingman, or maneuvering to the opposite side once the Flight
Lead rolls out.

The 180 is called a "Hook" turn. With a Hook Turn, the formation turns 180 degrees with both
aircraft turning at the same time.
Lead: "Knight hook left."
Wing: No response required.
