    High Flight - The stunning poem written by Royal Canadian Air Force Pilot Gillespie Magee, age 19, of No. 412 Squadron, RCAF; Killed in action December 11, 1941.

    Can't think of any.   I was in the Aviation Operations game for several years.  The one little piece that does come to mind is:

    "There are old pilots and bold pilots...
    But there are no old, bold pilots."

    For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
