Recently, I learned about an incident during the Yom Kippur war in which Israeli fighter pilots in F-4s destroyed low-flying Mi-8 helicopters by using the blast from their jet engines to send the helicopters crashing into the ground. When utilised correctly, the displacement of air can be a terrifically effective weapon.
As a result of this, comes my question what would be the destructive capabilities of the huge amount of air displaced by a dragon flapping its wings? Would it be a viable weapon to use against puny humans in my story?
For the sake of the question, said dragon would be roughly identical in dimensions to Smaug from The Hobbit movies (130 meters long with a ~150-170 metre wingspan).
