Fearless Flying Fool

By Scott L Vannatter

The Baron adjusted his flying outfit, checking for smoothness and, of course, general appearance for his crowd of onlookers.

He waved, stepping into the warmed-up plane, and shouted a hardy “See you back on the ground!” in his most fearless voice.

He had practiced and practiced, skydiving from over one hundred fifty feet into a five hundred gallon container of water, so that this new challenge from three hundred feet might not seem so difficult.

The plane went up to five hundred feet in order to circle once, get it’s bearings visually, and allow the Baron a chance to catch his breath before his death-defying feat.

All was well until the plane, at four hundred and fifty feet, stalled, due to lack of fuel (he forgot to check), and crashed into the tower itself, drowning both men while putting out the plane’s fire from the impact.

Namaste,
