Hmm. On page 68 of my edition he says, "My heart skipped a beat and sank." On page 69 of my edition he says '"Still, my heart began to taxi." Which one of those would count as love at first sight? (Page 68 of my version is when he first sees the plane.)

Please note: we may have different versions of the book, with different page numbers. This is the chapter titled 'The Day of Judgment."

I'm going to correct my earlier answer. Please accept my apologies; the lack of capitalization in "terrplane" confused me.

That occurs on page 104 of my version of the book, and is stated clearly.
