Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader

Crossing the skies over Ohio, three jets play follow the leader through the clouds…Between the contrails and the technological miracle of TCAS, each aircraft is infinitely aware of the position and altitude of the next. From a more personal emotional perspective, the contrails are beautiful frozen memories of our paths through the atmosphere. I feel euphoric when I witness them reflecting the late day sun, as if brilliant golden brushstrokes painting romance on the sky. I can imagine few things more melancholy than a cloudless sky without contrails.
