There I was, out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas…

and i realised the following:

If your not crashing, your not trying hard enough.

Why panic? It’s going to crash anyway.

Nobody likes to see a crash but no one likes to miss one either.

There are two types of pilots: those that have crashed and those that are about to.

There are two type of crashes: the regular crash and the spectacular crash.

So next time you flying remember....

Altitude first, I have never seen anyone crash into the air!

It was a great day...!

The lift was better than it's been in a long while!
Wow!
A bit of carnage on the side...
But that seems to be part of it all!
