    I’m flying a jet plane!

    So am I!

    I crashed!

    I’m flying high!

    How come you’re not still flying?

    I decided to land and help you.

    I’m too good a pilot to just crash.

    That’s what I figured.

    An invisible alien missile got me.

    Nobody escapes those! Let’s have a look at your elbow.
