Elusive since 1961, 22 has finally been caught, putting an end to one of the last century's most enduring mysteries. The capture of 22 means Orr and the rest of the Fighting 256th Squadron can finally hang up their flying helmets and enjoy life.
Having hung up his flying helmet, Orr commented that he would have time to enjoy life, adding that his good pal Yossarian was ecstatic that 22 had been detained.
"I'm ecstatic," whooped Yossarian, as we broke the news he could hang up his flying helmet as the capture of 22 meant he no longer had to fly.
Amongst the jubilation however we ask the question: is the world now safer or does the fact that the Fighting 256th Squadron have now finally hung up their flying helmets and no-longer have to fly leave a gap in the defences around Pianosa?
The jubilation could be short-lived as agents of the state explore the question we raised; that there could be a gap in the defences left by the absence of the Fighting 256th Squadron, and this may jeopardise security in the Pianosa region.
The solution to the gap in defences in the Pianosa region may be to instruct the nearby Fighting 256th Squadron, who were about to leave the area following the capture of 22, to resume missions instead of returning home to enjoy life.
The jubilation was short-lived after news that missions would resume for Orr and the rest of the Fighting 256th Squadron. The boys had been looking forward to returning home and enjoying life but now look set for another 47 years of hellish flying, despite the capture of 22.
