    • Opening Narration: While we were walking the green meadows of Walton's Mountain, daring flyers were conquering the beckoning blue skies. We had come to know an airmail pilot who would fly slightly off course just to say "hello" to us, and especially to Jim Bob. Jim Bob's head was in the clouds back in those days, dreaming of machines which he hoped one day to fly.

    • Closing Narration: We were never to see or hear from the wingwalker again. To this day I think of Bobby Strom whenever I see a white dove in flight, and within Jim-Bob's heart I'm sure there's a bitter-sweet memory.

    Notes (2)
