A simple word change to Connie Francis’s 1961 signature tune "Where the Boys Are" could morph that classic into the perfect theme song for aviators. "Where the birds are" seems a fitting anthem for that confederation of sky jockeys who seek the thrill of flight in jets, helicopters, and sailplanes. Those pilots are keenly aware that they invade the natural habitat of birds and take precautionary measures to avoid unwanted encounters.
