The aircraft began to move forward at a slow pace. The nose began to point upwards as I grabbed tightly on to the steering and lift controls, while still attempting to stay balanced against the forces.
As soon as I got to the cruise level, Uingusu sent a message to me over the teleradio device. I picked up the receiver and listened.
"Well done, John! Now, how about you fly around, get used to the controls." He said in a static voice.
I turned the levers to the right, the wings bending the desired diresction along with the rudder turning to a high angle, causing my aircraft to turn sharply to the left. I readied a Ballista spear and placed my hand on the large, metallic, black aiming mechanism, before placing my head at eye level and aiming it at a target set up on the mountain side. With a hard grip, I pulled the trigger, sending a large, long, and unbelievably sharp spear into the air, and through the target. I hoorayed in giddiness. Aiming the nose of the craft upwards, I began to fly quickly across the mountain again, watching my fuel and oil carefully.
When I landed, they allowed all the others to fly in the planes; they all thoroughly enjoyed their flights.
After the flights were done, I began to ask about the planes.
"Say, what are the planes made out of, anyway?" Was my first query.
"Hm....Most of it is quality Bathycite Ore, and there is also a lot of Carbodragonite Alloy in it. The plates are made of stiffened and streched Deviljho hide and shells." He answered expertly.
"Interesting, I was thinking it was Dragonite ore and Machalite ore instead." I said.
"Nooo. Those were tried, but they failed miserably, and weighed far to much for very little value..My idea shifted to different metals as a result." He replied.
"What is the fuel!?" Jonathan cried after getting off the plane.
"Ah ha ha! I was waiting for someone to ask!! It is made of a special mix or Rath Wyvern Flame Sac liquid and liquid from an Alatreon's mouth that allows it to create fireballs." He said.
"Whoa, that's some interestin' chemistry thar...But I don't reckon I can say much more than that, seein' as you went way beyond my Felyne's knowledge of chemistry." Jonathan said in a laugh.
We continued to talk through the night, laughing occasionally at something onew of the people would say, or taking an awkward moment of silence. One particular comment insighted a playful appiarition from Tayler, in which she pretended to be an airplane while sitting at the table, following a comment about hwo someone never thought they would see a Lagiacrus fly.
The next day was a short one for us. we got up, gave our thanks, and boarded our planes. In about ten minutes, our trip to the Blazing Mountain was underway.
