A light novel by Koroku Inumura which was later adapted into an animated movie by Studio Creator/{{Madhouse}}, '''Remembrances for a Certain Pilot''' (とある飛空士への追憶 ''To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku''; also known as ''The Princess and the Pilot'') tells the story of Charles Karino, a mercenary pilot serving under the Levahm Airforce, who is tasked an important mission: to ferry Princess Fana del Moral, only daughter of the ruling family of San Matilia and fiancee to the crown prince of the Empire of Levahm, safely across twelve thousand kilometers of open ocean to the mainland. The sheer distance of the trip is daunting enough, but throw in the fact that Levahm is currently at war with the neighboring Empire of Amatsukami, and whose armed aerial navy and air force patrol those waters, and one can see that the mission is anything ''but'' easy.

Despite that, after safely delivering Fana to the Special Operations ship, he calmly accepts the large bag of gold dust as payment for the mission... only to throw it away as confetti while putting on one last aerial show for Fana and the ship's crew.
