Textual Question Answer
Q. 1. “I’ll take the risk.” What is the risk? Why does the narrator take it?
Ans. The author wanted to get home to be present at the breakfast table. He wanted to fly the old Dakota aeroplane through the storm clouds. So he took the risk of flying straight into the storm cloud.
Q. 2. Describe the narrator’s experience as he flew the aeroplane into the storm.
Ans. The narrator flew his aeroplane through the storm cloud. Suddenly, he found that there was blackness around him inside the clouds. He could see nothing. The aeroplane jumped and twisted in the air. The compass did not work. The radio also went out of order. He was lost in the storm. Then he saw another aeroplane. It had no light on its wings. But it guided him ahead. Then it went out of sight. But the author was safe. The black clouds were behind him.
Q. 3. Why does the narrator say, “I landed and was not sorry to walk away from the old Dakota…” ?
Ans. The author had landed safely. He was not sorry to walk away from the old Dakota because it had saved his life. He had come safely out of the storm cloud though it seemed impossible.
Q. 4. What made the woman in the control centre look at the narrator strangely ?
Ans. After landing, the narrator asked about the mysterious aeroplane that had guided him through the dark clouds. But no such aeroplane had been seen on the radar. The lady did not come into contact with that aeroplane. So she was startled when the narrator asked questions about that aeroplane.
Q. 5. Who do you think helped the narrator to reach safely? Discuss this among yourselves and give reasons for your answer.
Ans. I think God helped the narrator. He employed some supernatural power to help the narrator to reach safely. Otherwise how could he fly safely through those dark clouds? Various things suggest this. For example, the appearance of the mysterious aeroplane at that particular time; how it knew the narrator was in trouble; how the pilot of the mysterious plane could guide him; where it disappeared; why the control tower had no such contact, etc.
