The lesson 'The Black Aeroplane' by Frederick Forsyth is about the experience of a pilot who got caught in a storm. The pilot was on his way to England. He crossed Paris on the way and took help from the Paris control room to help him navigate his way. He was flying an old Dakota aeroplane and was dreaming of a holiday with family. He wanted to have a good English breakfast. As he moved beyond Paris, he came across a huge storm cloud. He decided to take the risk and entered it, thereby getting stuck in it. The compass and the radio stopped working. Suddenly he saw another flight among the black clouds. The pilot of the other plane gestured to follow him. The pilot thus follows the plane to a safe runway. But when he searched for the other pilot to thank him, he was informed that his was the only flight in the sky and that the other plane did not exist.
