You went beyond exploration to become a “hero”, my friend. One of your closest associates said that you took that job, because you thought if anything should happen, they would have the best pilot available. I have so much admiration for that sentiment. I do not think they could have found a better or braver pilot anywhere. We know that you did your best. Sail on, and know that you are not alone. Our love is with you, and should you look outside, you might just see another hero flying beside: L’Oiseau Blanc, birds of a feather.
