Wing trailing vortex paths in formation flight

Includes bibliographical references. === Formation flight has been shown to reduce the induced drag for a formation of aircraft. The mechanism by which this is achieved is caused by the wake velocity field of the aircraft. This field is dominated by wing-tip trailing vortices. The paths of these vor...
