High Flight In December 1941, Pilot Officer John G. Magee Jr, a 19-year-old American serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force in England, was killed when his Spitfire collided with another aircraft inside a cloud. Just a few short months before, he composed his immortal sonnet 'High Flight, a copy of which he fortunately mailed to his parents in the U.S. I remember watching this video on our local tv station at sign-off, before they began broadcasting 24/7. To this day, these words still gives me goose-bumps.

Not only they showed High Flight on
TV sign-offs but if a movie ran short on TV, it would be shown.
