You fly by diving, speeding, getting to free-fall, anything that generates enough velocity to get the wings lifting, from there it’s the angle that provides upward momentum, but you have to manage the angle and the speed or you fall, and if you don’t have enough air under you, maybe you never stop falling. What’s the last thought someone has when they hit the ground, does the impact count? What’s that like?
It’s one of those questions I don’t want to answer.
The air is freezing, it’s good, I’m hot from the climb, sweaty, I smell of fear and I know the air will whip that smell away, wind chill is quite the factor when you are going thirty eight meters per second.
