Part of the ceremony consists of the execution of a missing man formation of 4 F-16 fighters from Volkel Air Base.
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 (KING1), 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 the second man pulls up (KING3)
abruptly and climbs straight upwards, to FL 090 above the location of the monument in memory of the fallen from the formation.
The rest of the formation retains its rate until all the planes are out of sight.
