Vortices are circulating currents of air caused by moving aircraft. Whilst most vortices are broken up by the natural flow of air before they reach the ground, sometimes they can reach roof level, causing movement or slippage to tiles. A trained assessor can identify whether or not particular roof damage resulted from an aircraft vortex.
