High & Mighty

My life long passion is flying. I was lucky enough to steer that passion into a full time job, first as military pilot and now as an airline pilot.

One of the profession's perks is that your office window view is constantly morphing into incredible scenarios. I always found aviation to be the perfect ground to harvest great pictures.

This gallery collects pictures related to aviation in general. The title comes from an Ernest Kellogg Gann novel: "The High and the Mighty". It’s not a masterpiece, but I read it when I was 14 or 15 and it really sunk into my young “aviator-to-be” heart.


****************

A paixão de uma vida, para mim, é voar.

Fui suficientemente feliz para realizar o meu sonho, primeiro como piloto militar e, agora, como piloto de linha aérea.

Um dos privilégios da profissão é ter uma "janela de escritório" que se transmuta de forma constante em cenários incríveis.

Sempre considerei a Aeronáutica o terreno perfeito para grandes colheitas fotográficas.

Esta galeria contém fotografias relacionadas de um modo geral com a Aviação.

O título é o de um livro de Ernest Kellogg Gann, "Alto e Poderoso". Não se trata de uma obra prima mas li-o com 14 ou 15 anos e enterrou-se para sempre no restrito domínio dos meus "afectos aeronáuticos".
