This time we start very late. Emmanuelle takes me directly with her, so that I can watch the wonders at the sky. From the cockpit, ha!
First a wonderful sunset and only a little bit later the moon in its full brightness. Its really a miracle to be up there. I had the feeling to be all alone with the moon and the stars (and Emmanuelle, of course). Everything is so quiet, and smooth, and harmonious.
It takes quite a long time before I realise that the sky starts to be brighter. Actually I am so far away with my thoughts, that I am almost a little frightened when Emmanuelle whispers in my ear. “Look, the night is over”, she tells me.
And in the same moment, I see a bit of orange popping up at the horizon. The sunrise!
When we are landing, I noticed that I haven’t slept all flight long. I am still very excited, but actually also pretty tired. What a journey!
Thank you so much, Emmanuelle. I hope that this is not our last flight together. You’ll be always my very first female pilot…and my very good friend!
