If geese flew at >100 knots they wouldn't/couldn't fly in formation because of wake turbulence.

That is interesting: "Jet engines meanwhile produce a vortex that contains a flow of rising air". I was taught that the vortex (wake turbulence) was a byproduct of the wing producing lift. I knew the FAA had it wrong all along ;-) Nice job of fact-checking techxplore!
