Faster Than the Speed of Light Pt.2Faster Than the Speed of Light Pt.2 by PhoenixSpeed
Dawn over the Atlantic Ocean brought the light of a rising sun and salty breeze of ocean currents from below. This morning calm was sliced to bits as the winding of high-powered turbofan engines powered Phoenix across the ocean at over Mach three and a half. "All systems are clear, continuing unprovoked flight.", he said to himself. Phoenix was running the Atlantic flight routes in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres for the past three days without a single break. This was to be his last flight of the shift, for when he landed in France, he'd be off-duty and go home to his girlfriend and daughter in New York state. "I really love this job. Never do you really get to enjoy flying at three times the speed of sound and get paid to do it. Of all the jobs in the world, nothing could be better.", he thought as he continued Eastbound. About two hours later, he lands in France, rests for a bit, and then high-tailed it out of there to go back West.
