Boy, that would be so much fun!!!!

Adjust the lateral, vertical and distance to stay IN, or just above the Wing-tip Overlap Out of Propwash, and you have a winner. Of course, the pax will be vomiting into their barf bags or helmets, but, you pay for an airplane ride, you get an airplane ride!
The C-17 has digital SKE that you couple to the A/P and A/T, so you can fly formation “hands-off”. I’m sure it won’t take much for the civilians to figure it out too...
