Description: Mark tells the others he is sure he heard a plane in the night and after finding wreckage on the beach, he is convinced a plane crashed off the island. In the village, Aaron also saw something and tells his mother he saw a bird "as big as a house" fall from the sky. Mark, David and Su Ying travel to far side of the volcano to visit Jason and his father, passing, unbeknownst to them, right under the injured pilot who is hanging in a tree by his parachute. Having skipped school again, Aaron finds the injured pilot who is brought to a cave by Helen and Aaron who care for him, bringing David and Su Ying back to help. When the kids explain to the pilot who they are, he reveals he was one of the searchers but the kids have all been given up for dead. After listening to Mark, David and Su Ying tell stories of the outside world, Adam Quinn wants his children to have nothing to do with the "false notions" the outsides are filling his childrens' heads with and forbids them from seeing his children again. Jason returns home to warn his mother about his father's proclamation and she promises to have a word with him but Adam stubbornly persists that the others be avoided, going so far as to report them to the Prime Minister. To give his father proof of what the others are saying, Jason takes him to the cave to see the injured pilot. Adam spends some time with the pilot before he dies, and emerges from the cave to admit he was wrong and has developed a new hope and a friendship with the children.
