C-130J Super Hercules aircraft fly in formation
The shadow of a C-130J Super Hercules flies over the dense woods of Germany, July 2, 2018. This particular C-130J led the formation during an exercise that involved four other C-130Js. Once the pilots have led a formation long enough, they are recognized as multi-element flight lead qualified pilots. Multi-element flight lead qualified pilots help ensure the 37th Airlift Squadron is prepared to accomplish one of its primary missions: aerial delivery and mass on the drop-zone.
