Describe the narrator’s experience as he flew the aeroplane into the storm.

Answer :

The narrator took the risk to fly the aeroplane straight into the cloudy storm and found himself trapped in black clouds. The compass started turning round and round and jumped and twisted in the air. The narrator was alarmed to see that all the other instruments including the radio were dead. Then, suddenly to his amazement, the narrator saw another plane and the pilot of that plane waving at him. He was much relieved to find someone sailing with him in the same boat. However, the thought of lesser fuel left made the narrator worried. As he followed the other pilot down, he soon realized that he had reached the runway and had landed safely.
