Avatar's depiction of flight

Forgot to mention in my observations in an earlier post.  Cameron's depictions of formation flight in Avatar looked dead on to me.  Especially when Jake was flying trail behind Neytiri.  He was "stacked" a little higher than her to stay out of wake turbulance.  Maybe banshee was doing that for him.

The human formations were very good too.  The way formations bank, rotating about the inboard aircraft, outboard aircraft increase altitude and return abeam when the turn is complete.  Looked perfect to me.
