Andrea Pitzer: When it comes to Golliwoggs...there is, of course, also the delightful "Nabokov's Golliwoggs" by D. Barton Johnson on Zembla:

JM: Thank you, Andrea. The correct translation for the aircraft episode can be found in Zembla, in D.B.Johnson's article you remember so well.!
"At the immense altitude..., the aeronauts huddled together for warmth while the lost little soloist, still the object of my intense envy notwithstanding his plight, drifted into an abyss of frost and stars ?alone."
