LOW-LEVEL AND TACTICAL FORMATION

Dig and Pinch
Lead uses these dig and pinch maneuvers to adjust the separation of the flight while the flight
moves in a constant direction. They are separate maneuvers; the dig increases separation of the
flight while the pinch decreases it. Aircrews begin the dig or the pinch while flying a constant
heading in either the combat cruise or combat spread formation. When lead commands, (Call
sign), Dig, aircraft simultaneously turn away from each other for 45 of heading change at 30
degrees AOB. When lead commands, Pinch, the aircraft simultaneously turn toward each other
for 45 of heading change. When the aircraft are the desired distance apart, the lead commands,
(Call sign), Resume, and both aircraft once again return to the original heading.
