Elemental Writing challenge Air #3:

The Golden Age of Ballooning

From up here the world seemed a calm place and the ground below like a toy town spread over a child’s lawn. I smiled to my flying partner, she produced the crystal radio set and set the frequency. A minute later the message was transmitted and the acknowledgement returned, we look at one another. When would the Kremlin suspect that we were double agents?
