Harry attempted to fly over the storm, but the steam from the boiling radiator turned to ice, after three attempts they were again forced to cut the engine and dive towards the sea. At 300 meters, Harry went to restart the engine, but it was non- responsive—in less than a minute they would be in the ocean. Harry shouted to Grieve to get busy on the hand gasoline pump. Nothing happened. Harry tried to hold the Atlantic in a low flat glide, but he could not prevent further decent. When Harry could see the ocean, he knew there was going to be a crash and if Grieve remained where he was, trying to pump fuel into the engine, he would be flung forward head first into the fuel tank.
