Before the flight, the mother gave him a hatchet as a present, and hooked it on his belt. On the way up there, the pilot kept a dull and quiet personality. When the tension loosened a little bit, the pilot actually let Brian drive the plane. Although scary, Brian got the hang of it rather quickly. While the pilot was driving, he randomly had a massive heart attack, and since there was no medical assistance, he died within a couple of minutes.
He glances at the pilot to make sure the tears weren 't noticed, and the pilot smiles, asking Brian if he 's ever flown in the copilot 's seat before. Brian says no, he hasn 't. The pilot shows Brian the plane 's rudder pedals and the steering controls, telling him that a "plane like this almost flies itself" Brian recovers his can-do attitude after a few days of self-petty and becomes even tougher than he was before. He constructs a bow and arrow, learns to fish, hunts birds and rabbits, and reinforces his shelter against the elements. He 's attacked by a skunk and, later, a moose.
The pilot suddenly started to have a heart attack in the middle of the flight and soon died. Since the pilot taught him, Brian flew the plane. He also tried to call for help, until the plane ran out of fuel and crashed. He had crashed in a lake that was in the middle of the Canadian wilderness and managed to survive the crash. Now, Brian had to learn how to survive.
None of the planes were available, so he went to a pilot friend and stole a bomber plane. They took the baby over and then came back to return the plane, but, after doing so, they were threatened with disciplinary action. The friend got mad and said he would quit if the Army would not loan a plane to save a life. They never received punishment. Unfortunately, the baby was safe at the hospital, but it did not have access to a mother’s milk.

So In this plane, there are only a pilot and Brian. This thing is also not common But when I read this book, I think " when I go trip, I must get survival tools.
The flu outbreak was caused by a plane crash containing a sample of the flu that was being transported to a lab. Hig lost his wife and child to the flu, when reading the author made it so it was easy to put yourself in Higs shoes to really see the reality of what had happened and the future of what was to come. The idea that Hig has to patrol the air night and day before he can even go hunting for food is unimaginable. As well as the fact that he no longer will sleep inside due to the danger of being trapped. Just by reading the first chapter of this book I became interested in the story and its
An indefinite number of men became numb to the deaths of their comrades, and yet secretly desired to die and bring a conclusion to their misery. Over all, this story allows us to observe changes within the mentalities of army officers. First, the trauma of living in a war zone can add a significant amount of intangible weight into someone’s life. In “The Things They Carried,” we discover that Cross’s men “carried all the emotional baggage of men who might die (443).” Given that the majority of humans have experienced some form of trauma, we can understand how some men were driven to suicide and others into
For example, when Louie, Phil, and Mac were stranded at sea for forty-six days, he had kept everyone’s spirits and hopes up so they wouldn’t all be overcome with insanity. Louie and his crew had just crashed their B-24D Army Air Force bomber into the Pacific Ocean and the only crew members that had survived were Louie, Phil, and Mac. These three men had made their way onto the inflatable life raft where they had suffered from a lack of food and water, heat stroke, poor hygiene, and just overall terrible conditions. But, to keep everyone’s minds sharp Louie suggested singing songs and to keep talking to each other about anything that would keep their minds off of the current situation that they were in. While the men were on the raft Louie said, “Within a few days of the crash, Louie began peppering the other two with questions on every conceivable subject…They told and retold stories…Phil sang church hymns; Louie taught the other two the lyrics to “White Christmas”(page 152-153).
He write about dangerous moments with sentences so plain compare to what he describes that the reader has a strong feeling of irony reading his notes. “During the night of May 30-31, we had a visitor whom we would have gladly missed: a Boche pilot flew his airplane over and dropped some bombs on the camp. Thanks to his clumsiness, there were no victims” (Barthas

It doesn’t matter where we go or what we do. Where all dead. All of us. We don’t know it yet.” (Hirsch p.209) Based on this quote I know why Stephen lost his will to live. Stephen lost his will to live because everyone around him is also dieing.
The organization of law and civilization is what gives people the structure to maintain peace. The novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding takes place during World War II; in the story a plane that is carrying boys ages 12 and younger gets shot down over an inhabited island: leaving the boys to fend for themselves. Originally the boys choose one leader, Ralph, but as the story goes on, the boys begin to split into two separate groups with Ralph being the leader of one group, and Jack being the leader of the other.

However, even in war there is compassion. In 1943, 2nd Lt. Charlie Brown was flying a B-17 bomber aircraft in a successful mission. But even though the mission was a success, the B-17 was holding on by a few screws and prayer, as it came under attack by hostile forces, which knocked out the plane’s oxygen, hydraulic, and electrical systems. Most of the crew were injured and the trail gunner was killed. By some miracle, Luftwaffe pilot, Franz Stigler, came across the bomber in his fighter jet.
