Almost Forgot

Close Calls

I almost forgot this amazing event. On my flight from LAX to Tokyo, about an hour outside of Tokyo, I opened my window shade and saw this! That is the engine from my plane in the corner and clearly another United Airlines flight racing us. I watched as the pilots of both planes sped up and slowed down and got pretty close to one another like they were just a couple of kids playing airplane games. It never was scary, but certainly something in all my years of flying I have never seen before. Here is another shot:

Hello there!

Strangely, I found seeing another plane comforting, like I wasn’t so alone. And it was beautiful to see such a huge vehicle be so free and nimble as it flew through the air.
