First Flight

I've watched this video quite a few times.

I first saw it on a newscast where the beginning and ending had been clipped. This appears to be the full version and I love every bit of it, from the pilot patting the seat to indicate to his passenger, a young rescued chimp where she might sit to the next "frame" when the passenger has decided where she is going to sit throughout the flight, her interest in something at the end of the flight panel, to the end where she jumps into the arms of a person waiting to greet and care for her.

Mussa is an alert, interested, polite and sometimes sleepy passenger. I wonder about her experience of this flight, what interests her below and what she sees thinks about as she takes off, flies and lands. The pilot clearly delights in the time he has with her.

I wish Mussa well.
