The "Beast from the Air" is actually a dead pilot attached to a parachute. The twins see it as an actual beast. Their imagination tells them, "it is furry, it has eyes, teeth, claws, wings and it chased them". The man, however, still represents the metaphorical beast that Somon tries to point out. Man is essentially his own beast. The man with the parachute represents both ideas to the boys.
