Beyond the Mountains of Madness
Like many fliers after the Great War, Ralph DeWitt has drifted through life, at a loss for what to do with himself. He has been a barnstormer, a stunt flier and a test pilot, but none of these occupations has given him the thrill that flying in the Great War did.
DeWitt looks forward to the challenge of flying a heavily-loaded plane into treacherous Antarctic Winds.
DeWitt is a block, hairy man, with black hair and dark brown eyes, who seems somewhat sullen or withdrawn, only when he is relating a tale of flight does he come alive.
