In "The Mission", a 1985 Spielberg 'Amazing Stories' tv mini-series episode, a WW2 USAAF bomber crewman is doomed to die, trapped in the underside glass gunner's position (because the pilot has to perform a forced belly-landing: the undercarriage is either jammed or shot). To save himself, the crewman gunner (a cartoonist by profession) manages to draw a replacement wheel assembly on a sketch-pad, and believes so strongly in his paper creation that it is projected, physically, onto the aircraft, and his life (and those of the whole crew) is/are saved. I clearly remember watching this episode (just once, over 30yrs ago) and being utterly-entranced by the whole concept. Does anyone know of any real-life examples of such a phenomenon, in any sense? Or was this story, in itself, entirely a work of fiction, without any reference to reality? It just seemed so gripping a concept: hugely-improbable, of course, and yet somehow not entirely impossible.
