Flying in Formation
Why do birds fly in formation?
According to Larry Gedney’s Article “Why Birds Fly in Vees,” a concept called the ‘Wingtip Vortex’ allows each bird in a proper vee to expend the same amount of energy.
Vees do not have to be symmetrical, but the important thing is that the front bird should have others on both sides.
“The savings in energy brought about by formation flying can be truly significant. A flight of 25 birds can fly 70 % farther using the same amount of energy.”
Here's to good wingmen.

I thought the Women Private Equity Summit was a tremendous success. I enjoyed meeting wonderful and gracious individuals who were willing to share their views and ideas with their peers, their proteges, and other fellow professionals.
The Women Private Equity Summit was information-packed with on-target insights delivered in breathtaking surroundings. I captured a few shots. Enjoy! Yes, you are welcomed to share this link with others.
Wishing you success in 2010 and beyond. Safe travels.
