Mike Oldfield: Five Miles Out

The irony of this song is that a lot of its aviation-related terminology is correct, but because it’s Mike Oldfield, the vocals are all distorted with electronica and you can’t really tell what’s being said.

Incidentally, if you happen to be flying in a light twin which is suddenly overtaken by a hurricane, you won’t be able to climb out—hurricane cloud formations tend to top out somewhere between 45-52,000 feet.
