22: One American pilot – flying blind and guessing his way back to shore in fog over the Aleutian Islands – spotted a duck flying ahead of him in the mist. “I knew that duck wouldn’t fly into a cliff so I just got behind it and flew formation on it till we got in.” Pilots had no heat in the cockpit, other than what a plane’s engines generated. Windshields froze over and instruments often became unreliable. In sub-zero temperatures motor oil turns to molasses, rubber becomes brittle and cracks, and rivets fall out of their holes. In a few short minutes a solid, well-made aircraft could become a rattling and drafty collection of loose parts at 22,000 feet.
