Airlines Flying in Formation coming to an Airspace Near You?

Some random daily news to pass the time. Not sure that it will work with competing airlines, but if there are a number of flights on a similar route from the same airline it might be viable.

Thanks for the link Carteki. Hmm, I wonder if we'll ever get the crowds on Orchard Road to walk in formation... :wink:

They already do. The walk side by side stretching completely across the sidewalk regardless of anybody coming from the opposite direction. That's a formation right? Just like the front line formation in a US football game. :wink:

Excuse me, Singapore is not America so football (soccer) means running helter skelter all over the place, which is exactly what Orchard Road is like these days. And that area, like London, is increasingly non-local now so I think we can safely blame the expats 8-)
