Hence the need for tight formation in FS, particularly if you are doing
formation flying, or as a group, but when everyone is on their own FP
with a common unknown destination, makes it more tricky turning the ID
tags off, you cannot cheat by seeing where the nearest a/c is landed.
Agreed - and you don't see any subtle heading changes either which makes formation flying a bit more guesswork.

It's a similar situation trying to fly in formation. In the real world you can hold station on a similar speed aircraft at about a mile distance with ease, but in FS it is very difficult for a number of reasons, not least that at 1.0nm, the lead aircraft is still just one or two pixels.
