wonder what the V in VML stands for. Our explanation is a scientific and
artistic one. In the fall you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in
a "V" formation.
Science has discovered why they fly this way: each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird
immediately behind it. By flying in this formation, the whole flock adds at
least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
In the same theme, we wanted to build an organization, VML,
with members sharing a common direction, traveling on the trust of one another
and lifting each other along the way, to allow us to reach our destinations the
fastest and safest way possible.
It is proven that when ever a goose falls out of formation,
it suddenly feels a drag and resistance, trying to get to its destination
alone. It is why a solo goose quickly gets back into formation - to take
advantage of the power of the flock.
Then if this isn't inspirational enough, when the lead
goose gets tired, he rotates backwards, allowing the wings of another goose to
Then you may wonder the sounds that we hear, as geese fly
over us. The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front, to keep their
speed up, much like modern day sport team members.
Lastly, when a goose gets sick or is wounded, falling out
of the formation, it is not uncommon to see two other geese falling out of the
formation, following the injured goose down, to help and protect him, staying
with him, until the goose is either able to fly again or dies.
Then, the geese launch out with another formation to catch
up with their group.
The next time you see a formation of geese, remember VML.
