"Night Shift"

Night flights never lose their appeal for me. The air is calmer, the radio is quieter. On a clear new moon night, the contrast between the starry sky and the sea of ​​lights on the ground is absolutely indescribable.
Despite all the beauty, the night also harbors dangers and challenges: distances and approaches are difficult to estimate, formation flying by sight is difficult, and reading documents in the cockpit is a real cramp. You are constantly fighting against the reflections of the lighting in the canopy and anyone who lands a single-seat fighter aircraft for the first time in a snow shower at night and "amber" weather (visibility 800m, cloud base at 200ft/~70m) knows why there is a difficulty allowance gives. This is precisely why the use must be practiced regularly, because we can carry out our tasks at any time, in almost any weather.
