Comparsion Of Throughout The Fate Is The Hunter And The Right Stuff

975 words - 4 pages

Summary
Throughout the Fate is The Hunter and The Right Stuff the pilots have been thrown in and put their selves in great danger while flying. These risks that the pilots must face have been approached in very different ways in some aspects, and almost identical in others. Each of the books contain pilots who make decisions based on their judgments alone and without any or much background information on it. Weather is another risk that the pilots need to overcome and each book has a different approach to it_________. Another difference between the two types of flying are their attitudes towards their flight, with military having huge egos and commercial having a more modest and safer approach. ____?_____.
Background
There are several characters that are followed throughout The Right Stuff with the main characters being the Mercury astronauts, Chuck Yeager, and Pete Conrad. While in the book Fate is The Hunter there is only one main character Ernest Gann. Earnest Gann is the typical commercial airline pilot who flies a variety of airplanes mostly consisting of the DC-2 and DC-3. However in The Right Stuff, the pilots are flying state of the art fighter planes and testing the newest creations from the air force and NASA such as the Mercury-Redstone Rockets. The dates and locations of these books overlap a fair amount, with The Right Stuff being contained within the USA from 1947-1963, and The Fate is the Hunter starting out in the USA and spreading into South America, Europe, and Asia with a timeline from the late 1930’s and into the early1950’s.
Discussion
Within each of the books the pilots had egos, but they had two different types, the military test pilots in The Right Stuff had an attitude displaying a fearless warrior as they “didn’t show the slightest indication of thinking that any unkind fate awaited” (W14), while the commercial pilots in Fate is The Hunter had a more modest ego. These egos that they bring for each flight had a dramatic change on the outcomes of each flight, the test pilots will never give in and will always push the plane even though they know that something is going terribly wrong and should declare an emergency but instead they give a response of “Negative, Negative, Whisky Kilo two eight is not declaring an emergency” (W24), however the commercial pilots declare an emergency almost instantly to insure their safety and the passengers safety, “call Nashville. Get emergency clearance” (G90). As a result of these two very different styles it is easily identified by their egos caused by the atmosphere they’re in. Commercial pilots being rewarded and praised for being able to land the plane the way that they did, and others say that only that crew on that day could of landed it. While the military is quite the opposite, as the other pilots will say only...
