Summary: The first time Jack died, he had enough time to look round confusedly, see the figure in black and go 'Wha-' before he was gasping back to life.
This is a very cool story. The characters are so very them. This isn't just funny, it manages to be poignant as well. There are so many good bits!
Quote:Part way through a sortie he got the strangest feeling that he was not alone, generally an impossibility with the size of a Spit's cockpit. Then a voice beside his ear said HELLO, and Jack had to explain to the rest of the flight why he'd just screamed like a girl over the radio when they couldn't even see any enemy planes yet.
He flicked his radio off. "What the hell are you doing here? I'm not dead. Yet."
I HAVE BEEN SEEING RATHER A LOT OF YOUNG MEN DEAD FROM PLANES LIKE THIS. SOME ARE STILL ENTHUSIASTIC AND USE PHRASES LIKE 'WIZARD PRANG'. I WISH TO KNOW WHY.
