The plane takes off on wobbly wings
My heart sings excited delighted
We soar no door
Crammed in tight kneeling on floor
Round we go and far below
The sea and lakes
The earth swings soft
Oceans of air rushing gushing
Helmet strap tight beneath my chin
Running in


The shout we throttle back
Stall warner's scream
Surreal dream
Sharp tap on back get out
Onto the step lean on the strut

Look in

Unburnt fuel like smelling salts
Assaults the brain high octane
Aphrodisiac smell neck hair rises
Thrill down spine all life is mine


Kick back big spread and arch
Point the toes wind rushing up my nose
One thousand two thousand three thousand
Reach pull recover
One thousand two thousand three thousand
Check canopy


Floating now silently peacefully
Earth divided between my boots
White crystal snow crisp on mountains
Silver sheen on sea my soul is free
For this brief time all is mine
Turn three sixty wonders all round


Lower now one thousnd feet turn to face the wind
Ground rushes up to greet my feet
Hit and roll itís over I fly no longer
Left the borrowed sky to the beautiful gull
My heart is full throbbing in my breast
Adventure at its best
My first freefall complete I survive
Feels great to be alive
