The view: The sun setting on departure at 12,000 feet from Athens, Georgia as a weather system approaches from the northwest.
The pilot: Mark A. Joiner
The airplane: Beechcraft Baron 58P
The mission: To pick up my wife, Julie, from a week of grandchildren babysitting!
The memory: In flying over 25 years together, my wife and I witnessed probably the most luminous sunset as it reflected and radiated from underneath the impending cloud formations to illuminate our aircraft and the landscape with such an amazing orange brilliance. It was truly a spiritual experience that only flying can produce.
