A Nazi Pilot was stationed at the Tanis dig site in 1936. He was scheduled to fly the German Flying Wing carrying the Ark of the Covenant from Tanis, Egypt to Berlin, Germany.

Biography Edit

While the plane was being prepared for the journey, the pilot was in the cockpit, and overheard the burlier mechanic challenging an escaped Indiana Jones to a fight after the latter knocked out the second mechanic.

During the ensuing tussle the pilot tried to intervene using a luger, but was knocked unconscious by Marion Ravenwood. He then fell on the Flying Wing's controls and started the engines up accidentally, setting into motion a sequence of events that would lead to his own death when the plane exploded. Jones and Ravenwood managed to escape.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Pilot was played by producer Frank Marshall in Raiders of the Lost Ark as a cameo appearance. He took on the role when the stuntman who was to play the part became ill.[1]

In the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! at Disney World, the Pilot actually survives the plane fight, as he leaves the Flying Wing after landing the plane, yelling at the German Mechanic before getting a motorcycle ride to the Nazi camp. Marion Ravenwood thus enters the plane unopposed.

The Pilot is absent from both LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures and its sequel, but is present in the Flying Wing set released by LEGO, along with minifigures of Indiana Jones, the German Mechanic and Marion Ravenwood.
