Your airplane may not honk like a goose but it may soon fly like one

Biomimicry is the field of using nature as inspiration for how we design things. It's long been known that geese fly faster in their V formation because they are drafting the goose in front. They take turns leading to share the burden of being in front. Boeing and NASA are working on making planes fly in formation.
