Patty Wagstaff in not just an American aviation legend and aerobatic champion, a woman who can fly at the highest levels she also is an introspective and sometimes brilliant explorer into the spiritual quest of flying. "Speed is life. Speed is fun, and so is tumbling and floating. .... Being tuned tot the inner melody, the heartbeat of the airplane, the engine, gives us the quality of being in the moment. ... I am elated into the dimension of space, and I feel more than a person,...--a bird, a winged human -- in reality a fusion of fire and air."
