  1. I would have looked at that picture and never noticed what you explained about the tufts. It is pretty amazing that along the way tufts were added to improve flight. You probably have some aviation experience but if not look at the wings of the next bush plane that you fly in and you will see all kinds of fin’s and strips that are used to disrupt and guide airflow over the wings. Thanks for Sharing

    • Good point, Jim. In fact, in researching this piece I looked at pictures of plane wings. I’m always fascinated to learn how we humans have applied adaptations in nature to technology. JD
