And Richard Bach wrote beautifully about pilots who love to fly to get there
and pilots who love to fly to, well, to fly. And if we get there it's a
bonus. And both types are fine by me but I know which group I fall in to.
Michel, I am barely sustained in these times of no flying by thoughts of
previous flights. Back in December, one of my last flights in the
Motorfalke, before the snow/freeze set in, was late afternoon, a fog along
the Danube, but the airfield was clear, a high layer of cloud but clear in
the West with the sun going down behind the Alps so they stood out in white
and dark contrast between the layers of cloud. I just hung about up there
soaking it all in until I really had to land. There was another Falke up
there and later in the club someone started talking about this great sunset
and we realised we had both been inspired by the beauty of it all and didn't
want to come down. The circuit bashers in Cessnas and other types hadn't
noticed a thing. So the intoxicants of that flight have kept me going but
your comment about "feeling very sick" alerts me to the fact that if I don't
get a fix pretty soon I will start to twitch. Yes a bit overdone but there's
the Kitfox in the hangar ready to go and no sign of the "tauwetter." The Fox
is a bit faster than the Falke (actually quite a bit) but it will one day
take me on long, long cross country flights across Europe. Can't wait.
Kerry. Kitfox builder's helper and soon to be KF pilot.

Gosh! Whenever I have been travelling or sailing, Kerry, I had with me
two small books: The Little Prince from St. Exupery (also a pilot) and
Bach's Jonathan Livingstone Seagull. In fact, the company I am working
for now, is called Seagull, in honour of the book. The company was
founded by a friend who also loved the idea to "fly to reach beyond."

If the wind brings you up north, friend, you know how to find me!

Cheers,
Michel

Hi Michel,
One day my plan is to fly north and I will definitely find the Norwegian
Fox. And I too have read everything by Bach and St. Ex. Still cold, still no
thaw.
