I look at today’s comic and an old musician joke comes to mind: “How do you know if the stage is level? When the drummer drools out of both sides of the mouth equally.” Well, that doesn’t work in a cockpit, does it! It really is no surprise that so many aviation pioneers met a horrible fate because of unexpected clouds, because, without instruments, it must be absolutely terrifying to suddenly be blind and not even able to trust your own perception of “down” anymore. Still happens today too. I’m sure many of you who fly have some tale to tell in that regard.
