Above the Clouds. Sky-Viators in CG Illustrations.


This post is devoted for all those who are real fans of aviation, for those who find the point of life in it, for all those who are not afraid of the depth of the sky. The dream to fly above the clouds in the altitudes where the air is thin is not for everyone, only those who are strong in their spirit are able to perform it and they dare to do it. They are capable of a faster gait in the sky when the sun dazzles the eyes, everything around is covered with fleece and even the beat of the heart is not heard against the din of engines. The flight starts with warming up the engines and ends after extremely tense hours spend in the boundless sky. The sky is their life, desire and passion. Their thoughts are always flying skywards and there is nothing for them like the form of the plane that projects on the sky in the birth of the day. I wish you and all of them the serenity of the sky and god-speed!

 

So, the time to start has come. Take a look at this collection of sky-viators and enjoy it!
