Way up there…

One of the things I enjoy most about flying (big plane or small) is the view that you can’t have from terra firma. For example, yesterday I was aboard a commercial airliner, flying above the clouds as the sunset. Here’s what it looked like.

Dusk from 35,000 feet.

The floor of clouds was like a swell on the ocean. The sunset was a perfect gradient of all rainbow. Hard to beat that. Thanks to American Airlines for another safe, on time journey, as well as a pair of excellent landings. I’m always impressed at how well the professionals can handle those airplanes.
