RFC Pilot Stranded

Recommended Posts


Looks like a picture from a nightmare - lost landing in no man's land.

 

That reminds me of that strange WW1 animation film someone had once posted.

Does anyone remember what it's title was, or even where to find it?

It could be the opening shot to a Twilight Zone episode.

 

Lt. Charles Lawton took of for a patrol on a rainy April day in 1917 - a day just like any other over France or so it seemed. He got separated from his flight in heavy fog and was forced to land in a muddy field. This was no ordinary field however - he had in fact landed in the Twilight Zone.

Whoa, for a minute there I thought such an episode exists! actually that could be a great theme for a Twilight Zone episode. Hun-Zombies emerging from the trenches, etc.

Very evocative WM. Considering the pilot though, how much more contentious if that machine had been a Nieuport 17 with the Lewis gun missing :grin:

What would be even creepier would be for him to find shelter in an Allied trench, where he is able to call his squadron while staying with the Tommies manning it. And he later finds out are are all dead from a recent gas attack.

"There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area we call the Twilight Zone."

 

 

It's really rather an unnerving image, WM. Well done!
