Leeuwarden(EHLW) Sunday 04.05.2014 Arrival after fly-by missing man formation Soesterberg

The missing man formation
The missing man can be carried out in different variants. The most common is where four aircraft mostly (fighters) in the so called
"finger four" formation flying, the aircraft flying in a V-shape, the leader flies to the point and his wingman left behind him.
The second man of the flight is flying right behind the leader, and his wingman right back there again
from the front view, the left leg of the V so longer than the right.
This formation flying low enough over to be clearly seen and when it's right above the site of the memorial,
the second man pulls up abruptly and flies straight upwards. The rest of the formation retains its rate until all the planes are out of sight.
