Drill Terminology Objectives AFMAN Identify 1 of 4 formations while performing drill
4 types of formations Column Inverted Column Line Inverted Line (p. 9) Flank: extreme right or left side of a formation in line in column
Line formation-element leaders to the right Column Formation-element leaders in front
File & Distance File=single column, one behind the other Distance= space from front to rear between units. 40 inches as measured from chests to the backs of individuals directly in front of them
