Most pilots, myself included, take an inordinate amount of pleasure in sharing their stories: Stories as old as the wars or as recent as yesterday's check-ride. There is no detail too small and no flight too long that can't be told.
As eager as we are to do the telling, we are equally willing to take our place as the "Listener." We ooh and aah at the perfect landing, the groundspeed, the airspeed, and the latest GPS. We feel each success as if it were our own and we celebrate. This is the connection we share.
...So when we hear of a gear-up landing, of a prop strike, or just of a really close call, we feel the pain. We listen with dread as the details unfold and we feel the pain...really we do. The collective sigh is one of relief...relief that the pilot is still here and able to tell his or her story, and relief that it isn't our story...that it didn't happen to us... this time.
From these shared experiences, the successes and the failures, we gain the insight necessary...and the stories keep coming.
I invite anyone with a story...to share it...here...with all of us. CK
