  • A lone F-16 drifts upward, leaving in itís wake, a footprint of swirls to mark its passage through a magnificent ocean of clouds. Inspired by American pilot John Gillespie Magee, Jr.ís poem, written to his parents 2 months before he perished in his Spitfire over Britain.

    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
    Of sun-split clouds, ó and done a hundred things
    You have not dreamed of ó wheeled and soared and swung
    High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
    I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
    My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
    Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
    I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
    Where never lark, or even eagle flew ó
    And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
    The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
    ó John Gillespie Magee, Jr
