The joys of night flying…

Night flying:

  1. Remember that the airplane doesn’t know that it’s dark.
  2. On a clear, moonless night, never fly between the tanker’s lights.
  3. There are certain aircraft sounds that can only be heard at night.
  4. If you’re going to night fly, it might as well be in the weather so you can double count your exposure to both hazards.
  5. Night formation is really an endless series of near misses in equilibrium with each other.
  6. You would have to pay a lot of money at a lot of amusement parks and perhaps add a few drugs, to get the same blend of psychedelic sensations as a single engine night weather flight.
