When the plane was being prepped to fly the Ark Of Covenant out to Berlin in 1936, the mechanic emerged from his hut to see Indiana Jones brawling with another Nazi. Although he easily outmatched Jones, he unintentionally saved the archaeologist's life at one point, when the Flying Wing's pilot was about to shoot Jones, the mechanic unknowingly stepped in between Jones and the pilot, so the pilot held his fire. Finding the challenge all too easy, the mechanic ordered the archaeologist to fight back, unaware that the rotating plane was drawing the propellers ever closer. Bemused by Jones duck for safety, the mechanic turned around to look behind him and was confronted by the propellers, chopping him to bloody bits.
