I know this topic must have been slaughtered many times over, but I guess you could say I had a "moment" today.
I was driving home and a storm over Southern California had just broken up and the skies were crystal clear, with a few spotty storm clouds here and there. It was about five o'clock and the sun was on its way down. I look up, and clear as daylight, with the sun glinting of the metal, was a United Airlines 777. It just caught my eye, and I sighed "What a beauty."
Its things like this that make me love aviation. There are many other reasons as well. Knowing that it is aviation that connects our world, which lets people travel freely and with ease anywhere they so please, is a wonderful thought. Knowing that when one is flying, they are free from any worldy worries on the ground, they are up in the wild blue yonder. Knowing that one is safer in an aircraft than in automobile, and knowing that when at the controls the possibilities are endless.
I know that this may sound corny, and that many of you say that flying is becoming more a hassle than it should be, but I look at it positively and get nothing but pure enjoyment whenever I think about it, or experience it.
And I also love knowing that there are many more out there who love it like I do.
