I believe that Yeats was deeply moved by the spirit of the pilots of the day, who, time after time, would get back in the cockpit and fly out to meet their fates. As aforesaid, I don't attach any great academic importance to this reading of the poem but I do feel that it's a reasonable interpretation - indeed, one that I certainly enjoy! In particular, Major Gregory fought not for God, King and Country, but for something more personal, the joy and personal achievement of flying.
