Question: What does the term "as the crow flies" mean?
Answer: "As the crow flies" refers to the most direct route from one place to another without detours. Before modern navigational systems existed, British vessels customarily carried a cage of crows. These birds would fly straight to the nearest land when released at sea, thus indicating where the nearest land mass was.
