T-6A FORMATION
CHAPTER FOUR
Figure 4-10 Acute Position
One technique to quickly and accurately assess a rendezvous is to check the "ABCs". "A" stands
for Altitude and the Lead should be slightly above the horizon to avoid any excessive vertical
movement near the end of the rejoin. "B" stands for Bearing and the Wingman should check the
visual cues discussed above. Finally, "C" stands for Closure and from a long distance (farther
than the cruise position) it is very difficult to judge closure but, as the rendezvous progresses,
excessive closure will quickly become evident.
3.  Underrun Procedure. In the event you become excessively acute (ahead of the rendezvous
bearing), acute in close, or experience an excessive closure rate and are unable to execute the
join-up safely, discontinue the rendezvous and call for the underrun procedure. When called, the
pilot will execute the underrun by:
a.
Lowering the nose to obtain 20 feet of stepdown
b.
Leveling the wings
c.
Reducing the power to idle to avoid passing ahead of the Lead (use speed brake as
required)
d.
Reporting "(Tactical Call sign)-2, underrun"
The Lead will reply with: "(Tactical Call sign)-2, you are cleared back inside when stable."
The Wingman shall reply: "2"
