Great year in Flight
This has been a great year for aviation. First there was the Space Ship One flight into space (though this was technically last year), then the flight of the Airbus A380 and yesterday’s flight of the Shuttle Discovery. I watched the last two live and I must say I had goose bumps all over my body. For some odd reason - even though I had nothing to do with the projects and they happened miles away from me - I could not help but well up with tears of joy as I saw those two giants take off. I can only imagine what the folks with proximity to the projects actually felt. The Wright brothers, Goddard and the other pioneers of flight must be some proud fellas, their dreams have led to this momentous period in flight.
