John Gillespie Magee was an American aviator and poet who died as a result of a mid-air collision over Lincolnshire during World War II. He was serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force, which he joined before the United States officially entered the war. He is most famous for his poem "High Flight." My title is actually the first line of his wonderful poem and we owe him and all the brave men he served wit much.

Thank you SkeletalMess and Playingwithbrushes for the wonderful free texture.

If by chance you enjoy this artography, what version best ?

Hey Susan. Thank you so much for your kind comment. If you are interested I use free textures from SkeletalMess and Playingwithbrushed, two generous artists on Flickr. I also use Color Efex Pro 3.o from NIK software - jimmy

Thanks, JJJ~! When I had a flickr acct - I faved MANY of playingwithbrushes textures as I LOVE montages and texture work. I am not good at it, but I love it! I haven't heard of SkeletalMess as I have not been on flickr for about as long as I have been absent from here. Will look into Efex - see what it is all about. Thanks so much for sharing your resources!
~Best,
Susan

Beautiful image! Very thought-provoking, even without the interesting story. I could see this as a huge backdrop in any aviation museum.
