LOW-LEVEL AND TACTICAL FORMATION
CHAPTER TWO
7.
When the flight is ready, LEAD will call for further taxi.
8.
Secure navigation lights and switch to tower frequency when approaching the hold short
line.
9.
Ground Abort. If problems are encountered with your aircraft, inform the other aircraft of
your problem(s) and intentions. The other aircraft may elect to abort or continue with an
alternate mission. (If originally a 3-ship, the mission commander will determine if the formation
may continue as a 2-ship.)
208. RUNWAY LINEUP/TAKEOFF
1.
LEAD positions on the left side of the runway. TWO positions on the right side of the
runway allowing tail-to-nose clearance. THREE positions directly behind LEAD with tail-to-
nose clearance from TWO.
2.
After the formation receives takeoff clearance and all aircraft are in position, all aircraft
will set power IAW appropriate NATOPS, scan engine instruments and other formation aircraft
for loose panels and leaks. WING reports ready (i.e., "TWO's in", "THREE's in"). LEAD
releases brakes, advances power slowly and smoothly to takeoff power, and begins the takeoff
roll.
3.
Five seconds after LEAD commences takeoff roll, TWO releases the brakes and begins his
takeoff roll. THREE will delay five seconds after TWO.
4.
During the takeoff roll, all aircraft shall remain on their respective side of the runway.
209. ABORTS
Aborts During Takeoff
1.
The copilot immediately transmits an "abort" call on tower frequency using formation
position number (e.g., "Montana/Stingray XXX, TWO's aborting, TWO's aborting, TWO's
aborting").
2.
Clear the runway as quickly as safety allows (i.e., taxi to the end of the runway).
3.
WING aircraft not on takeoff roll will hold until the runway is clear.
4.
If succeeding aircraft have already started takeoff roll, they shall also abort.
Airborne Aborts
1.
Aircraft aborting during assembly will remain clear of departing traffic.
