The Pilot was the pilot of the Nazi plane that, in 1936, was scheduled to fly the Ark of the Covenant from Tanis to Berlin. When Indiana Jones fought the mechanic with the wrench, the pilot didn't notice. However when the much larger mechanic appeared and challenged Jones to a fistfight, the pilot overheard and, grabbing a P38, attempted to assist his countryman by shooting Jones. However he was knocked unconscious by Marion Ravenwood. Subsequently, his body along with the plane was destroyed when the airfield blew up due leaking gasoline coming into contact with an exploded ammo dump.


  • He was made as a LEGO minifigure for the playset Fight on the Flying Wing, although his body just reuses one from a generic German soldier figure.
