This probably is my favorite image from Airventure 2012. When I look at tit, it reminds of the book I have read a long time ago, and probably don’t recall all the details. It was “Night flight” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. From what I do remember, it was a book about early airmen, struggling with the weather and own weaknesses to deliver the mail, overnight, from one continent to the other.
I look at the image (really taken in the early afternoon) and try imaging how it was to fly on a calm night, with moon lighting the earth beneath. How he were thinking about his book. And I also know that one day, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry will not come back from his flight (although not because of the weather). But not that night.
