Piloting a Pilatus P-2 aircraft in 1938, a Nazi aviator and his wingman approached the D-138 zeppelin that had turned back towards Berlin, they spotted a fleeing German biplane. Giving chase, they opened fire on the slower biplane. Eventually the biplane was forced down and crashed into a farm building.
As the two American fugitives Indiana Jones and his father stole a car, the pilot gave chase, strafing the ground behind the car in a dive attack. Following the automobile around a bend in the road, the pilot was forced into a tunnel. With its wings snapping off at the tunnel entrance, the plane's fuselage zoomed down the passage. The Americans pulled over to let the flaming plane pass by and the pilot looked at his situation with uncertainty. As the plane exited the tunnel, it exploded, killing the aviator. Jones and his father managed to pass through the burning wreckage without mishap.
