Did I mention I'm a bit of a plane freak? I know this particular model is ostensibly designed to kill people. But in the right hands, it also protects my nation's borders, builds careers, sustains advanced industries and inspires the next generation to raise the bar. So let's call the CF-18 a force for good and leave it at that.

Your turn: The appeal of flight. Why?
