Aerial Flight (The)
Back to Aerial Flight (The)
AERIAL FLIGHT, THE. English, Country Dance Tune (4/4 time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. There are two other tunes in Bland and Weller's 1803 volume that refer to the exploit of French parachutist André-Jacques Garnerin, "Parachute (The)" and "Garnerins Waltz." It is likely that this tune as well was named after his exploit (for which see note to "Parachute (The)").
