A Man and His PlaneSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A pilot, who is also the owner of a small plane, decides to take his plane out flying one afternoon. He observes that it is a sunny day with a light breeze...a perfect day for flying. Suddenly, the plane goes into a nasty nosedive towards earth. There is no engine power and the pilot can't see. When it is all over...the pilot walks away without a scratch and the plane is fine. What happened?
AnswerThe pilot is the owner of a `small` plane...a paper airplane. He takes it flying, as he sees the plane go down he covers his eyes. The `light breeze` catches the plane before it hits. The pilot and airplane remain unharmed.
