Once a young co-pilot, Incheon Korea who had gone to school with our elder son Jim, asked us up front in the middle of the night as the plane flew over the Incheon Korea on a crystal-clear night. We looked down to a seemingly endless snowscape, with high peaks, a rare drift of smoke from Incheon Korea a chimney, and occasional lights in Incheon Korea the valleys.

On another occasion we were on a US-bound 747 that, as some still did at that time, stopped to refuel in New Zealand. We were invited to sit behind the pilots and experience the landing approach into Auckland. It was disconcerting to lose all visual reference as the massive, descending machine flew into cloud. Flying blind is a bit scary when your experience of being in control of a vehicle is limited to a car! Auckland sprawls over an isthmus connecting the North and South islands. From ‘sea to shining sea’, we saw right across the country, from the Tasman Sea and Manukau Harbour to the Hauraki Gulf and the vast expanse of the Pacific beyond.

Most of my transcontinental flying has been across the essentially equivalent sized (about 7.7 million square kilometres) landmasses of Australia and the lower forty-eight mainland US states. Once the brightness of an airport and outer suburbs/commuter towns are left behind, the experience of an Australian night flight from, say, Melbourne to Darwin or Sydney to Perth is of darkness till the very end. By contrast, taking a red-eye from Miami or Atlanta to Los Angeles in the United States, the twinkling lights of small towns below remind us there are always people down there, at least until we approach the Rockies.
