The pilot was in trouble. Something was very wrong, and nothing was responding properly. He had been confident that they would make it to the nearest airport. Now, as they were losing altitude at an alarming rate, his confidence was dissipating.
Sadly, he picked up his radio. “Brace for an emergency landing.” Silence followed his announcement as passengers prepared for the worst.
“Oh God,” the co-pilot announced, showing the upcoming barn.
A pilot’s worst nightmare. He hoped there were no people inside or, even worse, something explosive. The ones in the cockpit braced for the inevitable impact.
