"In Flight" - Speedbird B747 FO writes beautifully about LHR-NRT

One of the most beautiful, lyrical, and informative pieces of writing I have read anywhere. I was going to call it beautiful aviation writing, but it is just beautiful writing. (nyti.ms) さらに...

Having never flown an aircraft into DCA personally, I was unaware of the way point names that this story shows. I think it was a very touching and cleverly created memorial to 9/11 when I saw it.

Just when you think literary skill has declined in our cold, technical age - this gentleman reminds us of the elegant simplicity of the spoken (written) word. Outstanding!

I will buy your book Captain! My dad was a Master Mariner in fore and aft sail as well as steam. I can hear him speaking your words to me, from so long ago. God speed in all of your flights!

A great window into the pilot mind. Reminiscent of E.K Gann's "Fate is the Hunter".
I will buy the book, of course. :-)

A fascinating read - both for the seasoned flier as well as the novice.

This year it will be 55 years since my "first solo" and in all those years I have never read a more informative piece of writing which beautifully describes what happens on the flight deck in terms that both a pilot and a layman will find engaging and delightful.

Thank you for the link and thank you to the writer, BA First Officer Mark van Hoenacker and New York Times for publishing it.

Beautiful piece of writing. Felt like I was there!

Something both poetry and prose. As I read this piece, I realised its visceral power over thought and feeling. As both a pilot and a poet, I found Mark Vanhoenaker's writing to be absolutely wonderful. ("wonderful" = "full of wonder")

That was a wonderful read and truly conveys the magic of flight.

Wow, this brings the beauty into flying across the skies in a large piece of aluminum. I agree with Hurf Sheldon. The writing is comparable to E.K. Gann's, Fate is The Hunter, one of the best books that describe flying in the early post-Wright Brothers years.

Mark's book was 'book of the week' on BBC radio a few weeks back, he has a poet's touch which brings back the romance and splendour of powered flight.

What a wonderful literary piece. It is loaded with information and a good read.
