I got this, if you need it... Discusses loads and loads of points that are 
probably relevant to the avian flight thread.

"In exhibiting a very peculiar morphology, the sterna further match
the humeri of pelagornithids whose shape is indicative of a highly
specialized mode of wing movement not found in other avian
taxa" and so on.
