FlightChops P-51 Flight

I follow this guy on You Tube.  He got to do a flight in the P-51, there is a lot of good information about the p-51 and formation flying.

I read this article a long time ago, thought it was a really cool perspective:

Nice video. Should this same technique be followed in helicopters. If your closer is too great, drop collective, go under to keep other aircraft in sight?

Not sure I would go under. Lots of bad air down there. Maybe over and behind? We don't have the same problems with advisability as the P-51 so I am not sure if those rules really apply.
