It wasn’t generally how I spend a Wednesday morning – inspecting the nooks and crannies of the exteriors of airplane hangars, which neatly line up one right after another along the runway at Los Alamos County Airport.
If I hadn’t been so fixated on spotting a peculiar lump or bump on the smooth asphalt, I would have probably appreciated the cool morning breeze and the perfect cloudless sky.
I would have enjoyed the fact that I was spending at least a few minutes of the morning in the fresh air rather than in the office.
None of these details registered that Wednesday morning. I had lost something and I was determined to recover it.
The previous evening, while conducting an interview at the airport, I was generously offered a short ride in one of the pilot’s airplanes. The pilot took a trial run of the flyover, which was performed during the July 4 celebrations. Los Alamos certainly looked beautiful from far up in the sky, with the sun setting and all the colors of the mesa becoming richer and more vibrant.
Like a tourist, I furiously pressed the shutter button on my camera, trying to capture the beauty that filled the plane’s windows.
