CASE STUDY # 6

An enlisted man in the Air Corps had some previous experience as a private pilot. After

a disagreement with his wife, he decided to punish her by committing suicide.

Choosing the most dramatic method he could think of, he took off in a large,

unattended aircraft and made several passes at the local river, each time pulling up

before he plunged in. Very soon, all other aircrafts were diverted to other cities, and

the local control tower was concentrating on trying to persuade him to change his

mind. He finally agreed, but then he discovered that although he knew how to take off,

he did not know how to land the unfamiliar plane. After some tense interchanges with

the tower control, however, he managed to get the plane down. When the military

police arrived at the plane, he found himself unable to remember his name or anything

about his identity, his present situation, or the events leading up to it.
