Aerial Dance

Months of intensive training have finally led to this chance of a dazzling aerial show and he is determined not to mess things up.

The difference between success and failure is the ability to hold the wheel in face of stressful times.

He messes up.

Aerial shows fascinate me, but I could not help but wonder, at what price are the pilots paying to produce such shows? I could not even drive a car properly, much less fly a jet in such close proximity to another…

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
  • Link back to this post (& check the link shows up under the weekly post).

    • True. And I believe accidents during aerial shows are even more shocking because of the audience’s attention on the pilots to display perfect skills, only for it to end in horrific ways…

      Personally, I feel the audience are “ooh-ing” and”ah-ing” because they are probably fantasising of themselves flying the Jets. *Shrugs* just a thought

      • That’s a good thought. Myself, I can’t bare to watch, just waiting for the accident to happen. I’m the same with stage magicians. Logic tells me not to worry, but I’m always thinking the trick won’t work. Doesn’t that I know there is no danger. While in my own life I’m an optimist, it seems with others I am not 🙂
