Banking in the Light
Even though the Boeing 747 is one of the largest aeroplanes in the world, it dwarfs in comparison with the major sky it rules.
Towering storms that build to the edges of space, or weather fronts that can easily stretch for hundreds of miles across countries and nations.
A small metal bird of 70m / 230ft long is hardly noticeable in such a large playing field. Being a pilot on this machine I sometimes marvel at the distances we fly and the enormous size and forces of the weather we encounter.
Feeling humble in the presence of the sky, privileged and proud to fly the Queen.
