Thread: Aviation/Flying Songs?

  1. #1

    Happy Aviation/Flying Songs?

    So for a application I am submitting for this high school competition, one essay involves talking about a song verse that means the most to you, and represents you. I wanted to use an aviation song, as aviation is one of my biggest passions in life. I would love to hear what some of yalls favorite aviation or flying songs are!

    The theme from "Firefly": "Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me...."

    Al Stewart's "Flying Sorcery" is pretty good, too....
