"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." -- Leonardo da Vinci

[Valeria Ivanovna Khomyakova became the first female pilot to shoot down an enemy aircraft, sixty years ago, 1942-09-03.]

Also, for folks who celebrate Labor Day in September instead of May (is that just a US & Canada thing, or does anybody else celebrate it at the same time we do?), have a happy Labor Day (and maybe read up on some of the history behind it and what ordinary-today things people fought and died for)!
