A wing is the organized fighting force of dragons during Threadfall. Typically containing 12-33 dragons, it is led by a wingleader, usually a bronzerider, and several wingseconds.
So each Wingleader should know each member of his wing, and send the smaller ones to rest, that why they worked in shifts. He trained all the bronzes and browns in leadership, so if the Wingleader had to drop out there were someone ready to take over.
Two blue wingsecond, that Sorka Hanrahan recalled that they were nice men, but good as second positions.
