The difference between a regular pilot and a mountain flyer is like the one between a  sheep and a chamois (Henri Giraud)

My dreams have came true. I am flying, soaring, diving through the heavens. I am a part of it all. My small airplane is gliding effortlessly over white powdered mountain peaks, landing softly on untouched endless snowy fields. I turn off the slowly purring engine. Suddenly only peace and tranqulity surrounds me, vastness, the majesty of Creation. I am overwhelmed !
