Results of experiments at high Reynolds numbers - both field an airborne - are used to validate an equivalent form of the 4/5 Kolmogorov, which demonstrate one of important aspects of non-locality of turbulent flows in the inertial range and stand in contradiction with the sweeping decorrelation hypothesis understood as statistical independence between large and small scales. This is supported by a set of exact purely kinematic relations also validated experimentally.
