CHAPTER 4
AIR FORCE T-38 TRACK INTERMEDIATES
Wingman
Monitor fuel frequently throughout the flight. Inform the Flight Lead when reaching Joker and
Bingo and get an acknowledgment. If fuel drops below Joker, before informing the Flight Lead
or during an Ops check, reference the fuel state from Bingo. (e.g., Joker is 600 lbs and Bingo is
400 lbs, Wingman notices he is 580, tells the Flight Lead, "Knight Two is Bingo plus 1.8" rather
than "Knight Two is Joker minus 20"). Remember to cross-check fuel frequently during high
fuel flow conditions. Terminate maneuvering with a Knock-it-Off call upon reaching Bingo.
Finally, Wingman must understand what factors the Flight Lead considered when determining
Joker and Bingo. These factors will determine what degree of fuel conservation is required to
continue with the mission after reaching those fuel states. Example, Flight Lead plans Bingo
based on max range recovery, Wingman at Bingo is stuck at one-mile trail, Wingman cannot go
max power to join up, lead may have to be passed to Two and Lead rejoins as the new Wingman
and then takes the lead back when the formation is back together. If fuel state is below Bingo
reference total fuel in hundreds of pounds during Ops checks, give individual tank quantities if a
fuel imbalance greater than 50 pounds exists. If fuel state is below Bingo reference total fuel in
hundreds of pounds during Ops checks, give individual tank quantities if a fuel imbalance greater
than 50 pounds exists.
