Data were rotated onto the engagement plane, defined by the starting position of the fly and the two points of greatest displacement of the target. The plane has axes X & Y while distance orthogonal to the plane is in axis Z. The summed displacements between fly and target in each dimension are given for Holcocephala and linear (i.) & erratic (ii.) targets and Coenosia linear (i.) & erratic (ii.) targets. The Z dimension is removed when correlating the rotation in pursuer heading with rotation
