Does anyone have access to the old fable about the student pilot flying a Piper Cub and looks up and sees a King Air and wishes he was flying the King Air. Then the fable switches to the King Air pilot who wishes he was flying a Gulfstream. And then the Gulfstream pilot who whishes he was flying a 747, and then the 747 pilot who wishes he was flying a fighter jet, and then the fighter jet pilot who wishes he was flying the space shuttle.
The story ends with the space shuttle pilot looking down on the piper cub and wishes he was flying the cub.

The origianl version is much better written, and I'm trying to find that version.
