Third person dream? First time I’ve ever heard of it. Must be a weird feeling . Not to get off the specific question, but have you had a flying dream ? Those a real cool !
I had flying dreams my whole life from when I was a little boy until I was a young man and got hurt in the Navy and haven’t had one since but I remember how hard it was to learn to fly how to move my fingers so that I could control turns just like the birds control the turns with the feathers of the tips of their wings. I used to love to fly!!!
as a little boy both my brother and I loved anything the flu and we idolized our neighbor who was a Captain for American Airlines. my neighbor was actually one of the worlds original Batman if you’ve ever seen the movie gypsy moths you’ll see what they did. he would jump out of an airplane wearing only a canvas suit with canvas between his wrists and ankles and have lit incendiary smoke flares in the suit selling smoke trails in the sky and she flew around then at the low critical altitude he would open a tiny little parachute on his stomach and land, He once did a command performance for Queen Elizabeth when she visited Canada
My brother worked as a lineboy at our local private airport in exchange for pilots flying lessons got his pilots license on the very day of his 16th birthday - before he even got his car driving license! I had to wait until I paid off all my college loans and got my pilots license when I was 40 years old.
i’ve tried my hand at hang gliding, (I crashed a lot), skydiving, and powered paragliding but my disability has gotten to the point that I can’t do anything very physical anymore and it would be very dangerous for me to have another accident.
in 2007 I undertook to to build my own airplane - Because owning one that is made in a factory it’s like having a kid in college forever! if you build your own airplane the government gives you the inspectors license and the repairman’s license for that airplane so it’s the only way for a normal day to be able to afford to fly. I built a very small airplane that doesn’t go very fast but burns automobile fuel so it’s economical to run. I finished it in 2012 and got a government aireorthiness certification on it, but that’s when my disability really kicked in and I’ve only been able to put 200 hours total time on the engine since the airplane was finished the last two years I wasn’t able to get in or out of it but I’m hoping this year to be able to fly it a few times,
but I still wish I could have those dreams of flying again because I knew in my soul that I could fly - I never doubted it even has a tiny little boy!
