view from Easyjet flight coming into land at Gatwick

“The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who… looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space… on the infinite highway of the air.” ~ Wilbur Wright

I wonder what Wilbur would make of it all now, thousands and thousands of jet planes flying round the globe every single day. I wonder if he ever imagined such a thing and that so many humans would see the beautiful planet they lived in from this amazing viewpoint.
