calbert: that's definitely the dumbest headline for the linked-to story.story makes no such claims as to "putting a jet inside another jet"I'm not even going to continue correcting subby...

AltheaToldMe: costermonger: All my experience in formation flying has been in the same type of aircraft as my lead or wing, but I think an airliner in cruise doing pretty much the worst thing (straight, level and fast) a lead could do for the wing to join up short of actually maneuvering to avoid him.

Theaetetus: For reference, with a pulse with of 1 microsecond, radar can't detect targets separated by less than 150m... The mandated separation for a heavy plane (777) following another heavy plane is 4 nautical miles due to wake turbulence. Now, you can get closer, but less than 150m? And stay there for an hour while you fly over India?
nekom: It's not the dumbest theory I've heard.
