Thanksgiving means something different to everyone. I think for pilots it has a special meaning.
As aviators we get to experience something few mortals will ever know; the patchwork of our fragile Earth from above, the beauty of a sunrise from altitude, the playfulness of fair-weather cumulus clouds – all from our lofty heights.
The speed and agility of our machines are unmatched by earthbound conveyances.
The feeling you get when you break the surly bonds of the planet are only shared by our brotherhood. That bond that brings us together is as powerful as blood.
For all these things I am thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving brothers and sisters of the ether!
