Diamond slot

A computer representation of a diamond slot formation.

The diamond slot formation was an acrobatic flight formation that could be performed by five spacecraft, such as Academy flight trainers. The ships formed a diamond shape with one ship in the center position and the other four ships directly to the fore, aft, port, and starboard of the center ship, respectively. The Yeager loop maneuver was performed in the diamond slot formation. (TNG: "The First Duty")
