No aeroplane for me! I enjoy the freedom of the air passing as I glide through the clouds drifting high above the waters made aquamarine by the reflection of light. What greater freedom than alone above the world’s worries?
Aghast, I acted on instinct after the initial shock of the earthward plummet. Pulling back on the stick and adjusting yaw, the pitch of the glider started to level the craft. The downward fall had allowed me enough speed to regain height.
The ground now much too close and my landing field too distant, sweat beaded my brow.
“This glider simulation software is brilliant!”

Like the twist in this; those simulators are sure realistic! Well written.

Felt like I was up there with you! Your description was even more realistic than the simulator!

Phew! I was worried there for a bit. Very well written to portray the fear when the unexpected happens.

This person really gets into a game! I’m like that about movies.

Awww…..I was so into the fear and then the ending took it all away. Very clever though. You had me going there!

I was so impressed with the technical knowledge you showed in this piece Ross. Then I started to worry about a crash then that brilliant twist at the end. Do I presume you have experienced this?
