It was the most amazing summer camp that we had ever been to. My friend Jonathan and I decided to join the flying-school. We underwent rigorous training and gained a lot of expertise, Jonathan in charting the course of flight and I, in flying the plane. 25 May 2010 was the Red Letter Day as we were to fly a plane for nearly half an hour without an instructor. At 6: 15 GMT we took the flight, Jonathan as a  navigator. and I, as the aviator . We remembered all the instructions given to us at the academy and we were transmitting signals at frequent intervals. The day was clear but windy. We were  skirting hills and were flying along the coast. Suddenly, the weather turned turbulent. We transmitted our position asking for advice. But unfortunately there was no communication from the other end. All of a sudden, we heard an explosion. The fuel tank of our plane had caught fire due to the lightning. We immediately decided to  abandon the plane and donned the  parachutes that were available. We were blown off 55-60 kms away from the coast and we landed on the outskirts of a dense forest. We were not injured but were hungry and thirsty. We ate some wild fruit hoping it was safe. But unluckily it was disastrous for Jonathan as he had  dysentery after that. We remembered our instructor's clear and  precise instructions in case of an emergency. We discussed various strategies and decided to implement to the core about the life saving strategies. We started exploring the forest. We must have wandered for about an hour or so along the coast, when my eyes suddenly fell on something red in the crevice of a big rock. I went closer to it and to my great happiness and relief I saw a  raft. It was stowed away in a cosy nook. Oh! What a relief it was! We were successful in rowing our way back from where we had started. Meanwhile, the coast guards were hunting for us. We had instantly become celebrities!
