Are you refering to the white feathers on the wing tip? Those are called white flights,if they are white. I am not familiar with a breed called "Flights" but there may be one!

"Flights" are a breed of pigeons and white flights would be white individuals of this breed; however, I think he was referring to birds where several of the primary feathers are white in color. I have a flock of primarily black Birmingham rollers with white flight feathers. They are really striking when they are flying and performing.

A "white flight" bird is any bird with one or more white flight feathers. Usually they are also pied (other randomly placed white feathers). Neither are diseases, just color genes.
