What does this website use to do this airplane flying affect?

If you scroll down on this page to that big red section there are planes flying around in the background. Its a really clean website and those planes they look vector sharp, it couldnt possibly be a video.

It looks so smooth as if its an engine running natively on my computer. Thought it might have been webAssembly or something.

This was the html that surrounded it in when I inspected it in the console. I saw a .pde file. What is that?

html <canvas id="flocking_plane" data-processing-sources="https://www.hrgworldwide.com/wp-content/themes/hrgMu/plane.pde" tabindex="0" width="2545" height="487" style="image-rendering: -webkit-optimize-contrast !important;"></canvas>

I went to the domain the file was hosted on. Turns out its just a really cool little javascript animation program.
