Standing by for the takeoff clearance on Lisbon's runway 21. Unusually dense fog for Lisbon is present making this an LVTO (Low Visibility Take Off) since the reported touchdown zone RVR (runway visual range) is 200m. A319 CS-TTP bound to Oslo: photo by Mathieu Neuforge, 1 December 2011
Watching the breaks
these cartoon years
they broke away
and left me here, unable to say
It's all good or things happen for a reason
It's not all good, and things
happen for no reason
and there is no useful parable
in any of this, O Captain!
I think I can make out the runway lights.
