Formation Flight

That movie about the little girl who flew an ultralight airplane, to lead a flock of Canadian Geese on their migration, that movie has always bothered me.

Glorifying the idea of children doing dangerous things in airplanes has always been a bad idea. And Canadian Geese are right up there at the top of my list, with squirrels and mosquitos, of pest-animals that need to be eliminated.

But apprently they still do the ultralight thing every year, with whooping cranes, and hopefully, with adult pilots. More info...

I was pointed to this story by a site called Journey North, which I enjoyed last spring, and is apparently also about the Fall seasonal changes too.
