And, instead of picturing a plane, I immediately thought about winged people. Sounds normal to you?
You don't have to because the english "there" means both the location and movement (e.g. english: "i am there" and "i am running there" but norwegian: "jeg er der" and "jeg løper dit")
I still don't quite understand the distinction. Could you (or someone else) please explain the difference between "der" and "dit" and when to use them in a little more detail? That would be really helpful. Thanks!
Where-to is replied with dit When you ask Where are you going to?... it is different to simple Where are you? Which is der
"Vi flyr dit" means, if translated literally, "we fly thither". However, as the English language evolved, "thither" became "there".
I think that "We fly thither"/"We're flying thither" should also pass here. You can still say that.
