Flies of the species Phormia regina and Calliphora erythrocephala were attached by the tips of their abdomen to an aerodynamic three-component balance in front of a laminar wind tunnel. The flies flew with equilibrated forces (lift=body weight, drag=thrust) and were filmed at a rate of 6000-8000 fps simultaneously from above, behind and the side by means of a system of mirrors.
