My cosmopolite was sustaining the pride and reputation of the Earth when the waiters closed in on both combatants with their famous flying wedge
formation and bore them outside, still resisting.
They are little more than legalised obstruction and barely removed from the Flying Wedge

I grabbed it, and the two of us--surrounded by a flying wedge

Faced with no opposition forwards, the Stade pack formed up to protect the ball carrier in a classic illegal flying wedge
Lotus had come up with its flying wedge
in the shape of Esprit 1.
All this contrasts with the graceful, stretched-out front end so that the car appears very much a flying wedge
features variable ratio, temperature control to 300 E vacuum degassing, positive-displacement metering, and output rates from 5 g/min to 70 lb/min.
However, when we did exactly that following a lineout in the 10th minute and the Stade pack formed a classic example of an illegal flying wedge
