"Flight" Music

"Illustration Friday's" word this week is "flight", which immediadely brings to mind "Flight of the Bumblebee" by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

More to my liking though is my beloved Edgar, in the CD "Barber, Meyer Concertos" in which he accompanies and wrote pieces for Hilary Hahn. Amazon has a sample of track #3 (Violin Concerto Op. 14, III Presto in Moto) that will take you (at least partially) on a most furious flight !

Anyone have any other good "flight" music to recommend ?

(And least you think this is my "IF" submission, it's not. This is me goofing off instead of working on it, and all the other things I should be working on !)
