From what source does this quote come?
You love a lot of things if you live around them, but there isnít any woman, and there isnít any horse, nor any before nor any after, that is as lovely as great airplane, and men who love them are faithful to them even though they leave them for others. A man has only one virginity to lose in fighters, and if it is a lovely plane he loses it to, there his heart will ever be. ó Ernest Hemingway August 1944
It's from an article he wrote for Collier's when he was their correspondent in London during World War II.
Titled "London Fights the Robots", it's about the R.A.F. effort to shoot down incoming buzz bombs(or pilotless aircraft, as EH calls them in the article).
I read this in the book, "By-Line: Ernest Hemingway", a compilation of much of his journalism.
