Update: The Miracle of Flight

jKMsE5B.gif

The early days of flight were fraught with uncertainty and peril.  Instruments?  Who needs instruments?  We're talking VFR, folks.  Pick a direction, and hope you can find a safe spot to land.

My father is a pilot of small planes.  When I was growing up, he used to take me to the Wadsworth Municipal Airport on Saturdays to pal around with his pilot buddies at their hangars.  Sometimes we'd take short trips, just for fun, to some other municipal airport nearby.  The diner at Carrol County Airport served great pies.  But forget about the pies---I got to fly!  As a little kid, he'd stick me in the copilot seat and let me take the yoke from time to time.

There were a number of pilot sayings from that era that stuck with me.  My father had a few of these on placards in his hangar.

"There are old pilots, and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold pilots."

"The air, like the sea, is very unforgiving of an error."

And one of the nearby airports had "Steve's Weather Rock," a 20-pound hunk of granite on a chain, hanging outside of its administration building, with a sign that read:

"If it's wet, it's raining."
"If it's white, it's snowing."
"If it's swinging, it's windy."
"If it's hanging straight out, it's too windy to fly."

Keep that in mind as you take to the sky.

Of course this would be the first response. "How do we use this to grief?"

Yikes.

I tried flying an airplane, I have no idea what I did or how it works, but I teleported to a new village.

Re: Update: The Miracle of Flight

I think I figured out how airplanes works after thinking about it for a little while.

Hop in to the airplane, drive straight in a direction like north or southeast and wish that there is a landing strip there to land (teleport to), or teleport to a new eve spawning location. Could be useful driving in the direction of a bell, as there might be a landing strip there.
