I like pleasure spiked with pain And music is my aeroplane It's my aeroplane Songbird sweet and sour Jane And music is my aeroplane It's my aeroplane Pleasure spiked with pain That mother fucker always spiked with pain
Ooh Did you see the frightened ones? Did you hear the falling bombs? Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the Promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue Sky?
This ol' airport's got me down It's no earthly good to me And I'm stuck here on the ground As cold and drunk as I can be You can't jump a jet plane Like you can a freight train So I best be on my way In the early mornin' rain You can't jump a jet plane Like you can a freight train So I best be on my way In the early mornin' rain
Oh, kiss me and smile for me Tell me that you'll wait for me Hold me like you'll never let me go 'Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane Don't know when I'll be back again Oh babe, I hate to go
The National Aviation Day (August 19) is a United States
national observation that celebrates the development of aviation.
was established in 1939 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who issued a presidential
proclamation which designated the anniversary of Orville Wright's birthday to
be National Aviation Day (Mr. Wright, born in 1871, was still alive when the
proclamation was first issued, and would live another nine years). The
proclamation was codified (USC 36:I:A:1:118), and it allows the sitting US
President to proclaim August 19 as National Aviation Day each year, if desired.
Their proclamation may direct all federal buildings and installations to fly
the US flag on that day, and may encourage citizens to observe the day with
activities that promote interest in aviation.
Aviation is the practical aspect or art of
aeronautics, being the design, development, production, operation and use of
aircraft, especially heavier than air aircraft. The word aviation was coined by
French writer and former naval officer Gabriel La Landelle in 1863, from the
verb avier (synonymous flying), itself derived from the Latin word avis ("bird")
and the suffix -ation.
