My "picture" of the finger four formation didn't
turn out as I thought it would. Here is a better
picture.

: A common formation during WW II was the so called
: "finger four" formation developed by the Germans
: in the Spanish Civil War. It looks somthing like
: this:

: -I-
: -I- -I-
: -I-

: As I understand it each pair contains a leader
: and a wingman. Wingman is not a rank.

: I suppose the number of planes on a patrol would
: vary depending on the strenght of the opposing
: forces. Is it the Flying Tigers you are writing
: about? Try to find some authentic litterature so
: you get the right feeling.
