Attract a Resquing Plane
The best ways to attract a rescuing crew would be to:
1. Start a fire. The smoke will travel up into the air. Planes can see big fires from the sky. The more fires you have to more chances you have for them to find you. But only light fires at night (unless it is too cold). Fires cannot be see to well with the sun in the sky.
2. Use a mirror. During the day if the sun is high enough in the sky, use a mirror to reflect the suns light back into the sky. If a plane is coming, this is the perfect oppertunity to hit the planes pilot windows with the rays of the sun. If done right it should attract their attention.
3. SOS. Save Our Souls. SOS is a universal distress term. 3 Short 3 Long 3 Short. Repeat. If you have a flashlight, at night, raise the flashlight to the sky and let out three short term beams of light then three long and then another three short beams, then repeat. If anyone is to see this, they will know someone is in danger whether the person seeing it is a regular citizen or a part of the rescuing crew they will know someone needs help.
4. Writing in the sand. Writing something in big letters in the sand is a good way to attract someones attention from the air. Find a stick and write something that would indicate that you need help. Whether it be HELP or SOS whatever you would like.
