The story “Black Aeroplane” is about a pilot who feels happy and contended to fly over a city that is sleeping (at the night time). He is flying from Paris to London. While taking his flight, he dreams about a long holiday with his family. He also fantasizes about the scrumptious breakfast he would have upon landing. As soon as he crosses Paris, he gets a look of the dark clouds that were a sign of the upcoming storm. The right decision would have been to turn back to Paris for the sake of safety. But he is overshadowed by his dreams and not wanting to delay them, risks the life of his passengers and heads straight into the storm. Everything gets dark, he is unable to see, all his direction instruments stopped functioning and he lost control of the plane. When all hope was lost, he saw another plane whose pilot was more than willing to rescue them. The author was panicking as there was very less amount of fuel left. The anonymous pilot guided them out of the storm and disappeared as soon as they saw light.  Upon landing, when he asks the lady in the control room about the other pilot, he is left in shock when she says that he was the only plane in the sky.

The Pilot was flying to England from France from his old Dakota. He was eagerly waiting to meet his family. He was cheerful to reach his place. He did not had enough fuel. Stormy clouds were compared to black huge mountains. The Desire that made him continue his journey was his family. So he took a rest because of a strong desire. The situation seems to be a bleak. He saw another aeroplane. He followed that strange aeroplane. He was brave and talented. He believed in himself that he would manage to come out of the difficult situation. Maybe it was the aeroplane sent by god. God does exist. He went to the control Tower to thank the pilot. But the Receptionist told him that there was no other plane flying at that moment. God helps those those who help themselves
