Flying- Bob's Ultimate Love
This is an actual photo of Bob flying.
A collection of Bob's Flight Log books-
Over 15,000 Flying hours logged!
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 - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - 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 thro' 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 eagles flew -
And while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The High, untrespassed sancity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
---By pilot John Gillespie Magee, Jr.,RCAF
