Back during the Cold War , before infomercials , many American tv stations “signed off” (air) with a narration of “High Flight” , accompanied by patriotic footage of an intercepter in flight . Depending on how long you have been an expatriate , perhaps this is where you remember the poem . It is a wonderful piece , in my opinion better than anything I have yet to read on Medium , even (especially !) my own ☺ , and I urge you to read it . The loss of artists in war I have always particularly felt , and one can not but wonder what a 19-year-old who could write such a poem might have done…

As to “the list” , you may choose to know or not as you please , as the excerpted forms of each subject have already been pubbed on Medium . The supported version of “Scott” is upcoming , for example . (And I had to see the Omega-way cool !)
