    I sweep the skies with fire and steel

    My highway is the cloud
I swoop, I soar, aloft I wheel

    My engine laughing loud
I fight with gleaming blades the wind

    That dares dispute my path

    I leave the howling storm behind

    I ride upon it’s wrath.

    I laugh to see your tiny world

    Your toys of ships, your cars
I rove an endless road unfurled

    Where the mile stones are the stars
And far below, men wait and peer

    For what my coming brings

    I fill their quaking hearts with fear
For death…is in my wings.

    The Aeroplane - Gordon Boshell, written after watching Battle of Britain dogfights from the streets of London

  • "We toast our hearty comrades who have fallen from the skies, and were gently caught by God’s own hand to be with him on High.
    To dwell among the soaring clouds they’ve known so well before. From victory roll to tail chase, at heaven’s very door.
    As we fly among them there, we’re sure to head their plea. To take care my friend, watch your six, and do one more roll for me."
    One More Roll - Commander Jerry Coffee, Hanoi, 1968.

  • "Fighter pilots, above all else, know who among their peers are hunters and who are hunted. They absolutely will not fly into a tough combat situation with a wingman they don’t trust and not all men make the cut. Where we work is a vicious place. I’ll attempt to describe it, but the full comprehension comes only in a sky full of hot metal and smart missiles that all seem to be looking at you. You’re in a machine that is so fast and powerful that you intuitively know that if death comes, it will be full of hot fire. Frail human that you are, you will be shredded to pieces. Worst of all, you’ll be alone in a fierce place where your comrades cannot hold you while you die. That is the real environment of a fighter pilot."
