Thanks for Jet Planes
In the 15th Century, it took Vasco da Gama nearly a year to navigate from Portugal to India, sailing around the Cape of Good Hope, up the eastern coast of Africa and through the Arabian Sea.
In the 21st Century, it takes Clay 24 hours to fly from India to Frankfort to Newark, NJ to Indianapolis.
I don't think Mrs. da Gama could have been any happier to see her husband than I am to see mine.
Thanks to aeronautical engineers everywhere.
