Fun facts about aviation

One of the most famous airline boarding music pieces is Cathay Pacific’s, but many don’t know the real name or who composed it.

After a deep dive on the internet, I found that it’s actually part of a five part suite composed for Dragonair. The five parts were written by Johnny Yim, who is a composer based out of Hong Kong. The one that most people know to be Cathay Pacific’s boarding music is the fourth movement, which is titled “Soaring High”.
