8 station VLBI maps of the nuclear jets in 3C309.1 and 3C380 reveal complex, bent, structures which seem hard to reconcile with the concept of ballistic outflow. Together with the observation of “flaring” in the MERLIN/EVN map of the 3C309.1 jet the maps point strongly to the jets being confined fluid flows.
