This page (fourth of five featuring the USAF Thunderbirds), you see a sequence that shows the maneuver being performed. In this case, the four planes closest to the camera are flying very slowly, with their wheels and flaps down. The solo plane is approaching from behind very fast. We see the solo plane catch up and fly through the four plane formation.
