Brazilian free-tailed bat is the fastest flyer in the animal kingdom
Sounds highly dubious, not least that Swifts, despite their name, don't actually fly very fast in horizontal flight (around 40-50 km/h or less); very hard to tell accurately as they can get a lot faster in intermittent swooping / diving which they do frequently in flight. AFAIK, the fastest birds in level flight are some of the diving ducks, at around 100 km/h.
