Compression: Erin Fitzgerald

“On compression: For over ten years, I couldn’t fly without medication. Then one afternoon I read an article that explained the physics of flight. The air that surrounds a plane, it claimed, pushes it equally on all sides. The air isn’t actually gelatinous, but it behaves like it is. Now when I sit in a metal tube, I think of the air inside and out, but I behave like I’m not afraid. ” — Erin Fitzgerald
