CHAPTER FOUR
T-6A FORMATION
412. SHACKLE
Shackles are used to cross the Wingman from combat spread on one side of the Lead to the other.
These turns may also be initiated to "dress" the formation to the proper position should the line
abreast position be poor.
1.
Called shackle turns are initiated by calling, "(Tactical Call sign), shackle". When
Wingman responds, "Two", both aircraft turn 45 (if starting from the proper line abreast
position) into each other. When flightpaths cross, the turn is reversed back to the original
heading (Figure 4-17).
2.  Uncalled shackle turns are performed identical to called shackle turns except there are no
radio calls. The lead aircraft initiates shackle turns by giving a wing flash away from the
Wingman. The Wingman will start a standard tactical turn into Lead (assuming a 90 turn) and
the Lead will immediately turn into the Wingman at which time Lead signals the Wingman the
lead is directing a shackle.
3.
Visual lookout remains the same (both students checking the formation's six).
