I remember seeing something similar in one of the mags many years ago, a four-plane formation of the Blue Angels' Grumman F11 Tigers in a diamond formation. The front and back ones were on a single lengthwise stick, with the other two on a single cross-wise stick that was pivoted to the middle of the lengthwise stick. The whole thing was a control line model that would take off and land with all four locked together. In flight, the pilot could release the two side planes, which would then do a continuous roll around the lengthwise stick holding the front and back airplanes. IIRC, there was a single engine in the nose of the lead airplane that powered the whole thing.
