What do I love most about airplanes????
That's simple. They are graceful. There is an amazing beauty to catch the sight of one of these big birds as it rotates and leaves the ground.
When I used to go spotting at BWI
many years ago, I can remember the sight of the planes climbing up over the berm. You see, from where I was standing, you really couldn't see them when they were on the ground. As they were taking off, coming towards me, you really can't hear them. Then you see this beautiful aircraft, rising up over the berm as it climbs. Then the sound catches you. The roar of those powerful jet engines getting louder as the plane gets closer. Then it roars over your head and you feel the wind vortex as it passes and you hear the crackle of those huge engines.
Then you watch as it gracefully glides away to some far away place.
Then, there is quiet again, but only for a moment, because here comes another one! Yeah!
That's what I love most about airplanes
My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.
