Some works inspired by the life and works of Antoine De Saint-Exupery. Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) was born in Lyons,France.Known throughout the world as the author and illustrator of The Little Prince, Saint-Exupery wrote several other books that also have become classics of World literature, including Night Flight and Wind, Sand and Stars. He disappeared over the Mediterranean while flying a reconnaissance mission in a P38 Lightning for his French air squadron in July 1944. "Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other but in looking outward in the same direction". Antoine de Saint-Exupery. "Each man must look to himself to teach him the meaning of life.It is not something discovered:it is something molded". Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Over water, depth perception is poor. 1,000ft altitude looks the same as 10,000ft, even on a clear day.

Once called pilot vertigo or aviator’s vertigo, spatial disorientation is a persistent killer. Federal Aviation Administration statistics show that the condition is at least partly responsible for about 15 percent of general aviation accidents, most of which occur in clouds or at night, and 90 percent of which are fatal.
Early aviators were confronted by an assault on their senses, or “disturbances of equilibrium,” as Orville Wright described it. Until World War I, most flights were made during the day and limited to short, straight-and-level hops. Few risked flying at night, and fewer still flew into clouds, or at least did and lived to tell about it.

Into the experience of Icarus we can read Amy Johnson, Antoine De Saint-Exupery, Amelia Earhart, and Jean Mermoz.Two pairs of close friends who fell out of the sky into the sea never to be seen again.
