HIGH FLIGHT

By John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

Oh, I Have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds ~ and done a hundred things
you have not dreamed of ~ wheeled and soared and swung.
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
my eager craft through the footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
where never lark, nor even eagle flew.
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of
God.

John McGee, aged 19yrs.
Canadian Fighter Pilot
Killed in combat. Battle of Britain 1940


GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING IS HELD THE SECOND THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH AT OUR HANGAR. PUBLIC IS WELCOME TO ATTEND.

AND THE 5 YEAR RESTORATION IN PICTURES

Visit Air Heritage Museum and allow aircraft from the past to guide you through the rich history of flight. Images of wings, beating propellers and blaring radial engines send some visitors reeling into memories of challenges bravely met in the past, while others are able to admire the acts that have led to today's flight technology.



Aviation is endless! It is our task to build a "vehicle" capable of "BRINGING the PAST into the PRESENT."



Existing information is the machinery but individuals with an interest in aviation, history or education are essential tools. The smallest of talents prove to be quite useful!
