What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 15 – The Pilot’s Dilemma

7 Jun

You’re heading home after a reconnaissance flight over a zombie-infested zone. The intelligence data stored in the memory banks of your instruments are vital for the army as they prepare to launch a counter-offensive against the undead. Suddenly you realise you’re running low on fuel. You do a quick calculation: you have enough fuel to make it back to the safe zone but not to land, meaning you’ll have to eject. You’ll float to the ground in the safe zone on your parachute but without a pilot the plane will then crash, destroying all the data you collected. This means the army will go in unprepared, many men will die and the mission will probably fail. You could, instead, send out a distress call and set the plane down in the zombie zone. The undead are everywhere and they’ll probably devour you before anyone can rescue you but they’ll be able to retrieve the vital data, saving many soldiers’ lives and ensuring the mission’s success. What do you do?


As always, this dilemma is just here to make you think, so there’s no right or wrong answer. Vote in the poll to let others know what you do if you were in this situation, and if you want to give a more detailed answer, leave a comment on this posting.
