Transcription

Lord of thunderhead and sky,
Who placed in Man the will to fly,
Who taught his hand speed, skill and grace,
To soar beyond Man’s dwelling place.
You shared with him the Eagle’s view,
The right to fly as Eagles do,
The right to call the clouds his home,
And grateful through your heavens roam.
May we assembled here tonight,
Groundcrew, Aircrew, Support Staff too,
All partners in the world of flight,
Recall with twofold gratitude,
Your Gift of wings: Your gift of food.
Blessing as amended by Col John David,
June 1994
