The lesson 'The Black Aeroplane' by Frederick Forsyth revolves around the incident where a pilot gets stuck in a storm cloud. The lesson can be considered to fit into the genre of mystery and partly a thriller. The lesson teaches us that it is important for us to know when to take risks. One has to be patient and think twice before taking a step. Certain things can be tempting, but one has to think of the best. The ending of the lesson is a mystery as the pilot does not know who exactly helped him. It could be his own motivation to survive and self-confidence. Sometimes our confidence manifests in different forms. It could have taken the form of a black aeroplane for him. It could also be a divine intervention or supernatural force that was trying to save the pilot.
