Editor’s note: This is the latest installment in our weekly series called simply the “Friday Photo.” Each week we’ll share a great photo taken from the cockpit – one that shares the joy, beauty or fun of flying. If you’d like to join in, send your photo and description (using the format below) to: [email protected]
The view: Flying above the Säntis at 9800 ft.
The pilot: Tobias Goller
The airplane: Cessna 172
The mission: After a hard work week, being able to get some air time
The memory: After spending more than a week below the cloud/fog layer, being able to get a clear view again and spending some quality time with very good friends. Autumn is quite a special time in Switzerland. Very often you don’t get any glimpse of the sun for weeks in the Zurich area… if you know the holes to pinch through (and if you’re lucky like me to have a pilot license) you get the chance to see some sun, at least if you’re in the air. Moments like this always make it clear to me that I’m very fortunate in so many ways… Everyone has his one big love story. I do have three: My wife, my daughter – and being able to fly. All the sorrows you may have on the ground are forgotten once airborne.
