Perhaps the most enigmatic figured in modern aviation is “The Black Swan,” a pirate currently operating in and around the Empire State. The Swan (real name unknown) is a woman of mystery, indeed of many mysteries. Flyers in all corners of North America seem to revel in tall tales about this beautiful pirate, most wildly contradictory and often outrageous. The Swan seems to be aware of each of these stories, and in fact seems to go out of her way to acknowledge all of them as truth. The fact remains: no one knows where she was born, what her real name is, or even her nationality. After forming her own band four years ago, the Black Swan has systematically staged raids in the People’s Collective, the Industrial States of America, Dixie and the Republic of Texas. As a privateer, the Swan mostly preys on Dixie and ISA shipping. She’s been so successful in fact, that the price on her head now tops $10,000.
