Why is this different from when we see the other Death Eaters and the Order of the Phoenix flying? ---- 09:47, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

Because that stuff that looks like flying in the movies can't be considered canon because it doesn't tally with the books. ProfessorTofty (talk) 14:47, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
And?? They could simply be non-canon appearances of unsupported flight, as it isn't identified as Apparition, and as such you can't say it is. Furthermore it is exactly the same form of travelling as Voldemort and Severus Snape uses in the end of the series. I say that it is unsupported flight. -- 15:00, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (video game) specifically identifies it as Apparition (coining the term "Apparition trails"). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:42, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
Furthermore, when Voldemort does it in the book, everyone is all shocked and surprised - it's clear that it's something that isn't known to a whole bunch of people, so it can't be considered canon as being the same thing that Voldemort did. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:47, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
With that in it's place, does this mean that Voldemort used unsupported flight when flying around the castle and into the Viaduct Courtyard in the last film, video game and LEGO game, or was that indeed Apparition? ---- 19:02, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
In my opinion, this Unsupported flight seems to be just a personalized form of the "flying Apparition" that it's shown in several scenes of the Harry Potter films. For example: 1) The flight of the Order of the Phoenix and Death Eaters members during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries; 2) The flight of Bellatrix Lestrange and Fenrir Greyback when they attacked The Burrow in the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (film). Maybe the scenes of the Unsupported flight were just picture effects for the films and not an actual creation of Voldemort or Snape. Andre G. Dias (talk) 11:18, March 1, 2014 (Brazil)

Also in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoniex Siruis Black , Remius Lupin and others in the Ministry of Magic use the same kind of unsupported flight which would of not have been taught to them by Voldemort . 

Member's of the Order using Unsupported flight

As already noted above, this is a non-canon rendition of Apparition, not an example of Voldemort's unsupported flight. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 19:00, April 16, 2015 (UTC)

Uhm... No.

NO WHERE in canon does it say other DEs can fly unsupported except Snape... Ninclow (talk) 21:23, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

And no where it says that it's unsupported flying. They are flying via black smoke and it doesn't say anywhere that it's Apparition. Tremewitch127 (talk) 06:49, November 29, 2017 (UTC) Tremewitch127
