The `Missing Man' is usually flown by four to six aircraft in a V formation with the left leg longer than the right, and the flight leader at the point of the arrowhead. As the formation approaches the gravesite or other ceremony area, the wingman following to the leader's right (left from below) leaves the formation in a spectacular pull-up, suggesting the hero's soul going up to God.
