A crafted mission sends a pilot far into the vast blue, over foreign waters and through enemy territory. His metal cage surrounds him like a bird, and he lusts to be free with any means necessary. A layer of common promise guides him forth with earnest expectations for a world beyond. His reactive wit crashes his ship willingly.

    Not sure I like the idea of this – crashing his air ship! But very nicely written and in at least two diciplines – well done!

    The clipped cadence of this reminds me of aircraft crash reports I’ve read from the NSTB. This is much more creative, of course, but it has a certain vibe to it that I really like.

    Hmm. A takeoff from a true story, methinks! Nicely done.

    Very interesting. I can’t decide exactly what’s going on. My interpretation is that his conscience can’t deal with the killing he’s inflicting, and his path to “freedom” is to release his mortal coil, so to speak. But I’m not at all sure that’s what you meant.

  5. Creative take on the kamikaze.

    I’m not exactly sure what I was trying to write, but what you wrote about it sounds good. 😛

    sounds great to me, almost sad in a way, it seems he wants to let go and die rather than trying to land somewhere
