A "passenger" (re: an off-duty pilot) helped land a plane at an airport in Dublin after the first officer became ill while en route.

No word yet on whether or not the "passenger" had a drinking problem. *splash*

the pilot in command... is the captain. there's also a first officer ready to take over if something happens to the captain. this article makes no mention of how BOTH captain and first officer became incapacitated.


anyway, all they had to do was enable Cat IIlb landing and the plane would bring itself in without anyone in the cockpit.

there can be no meaning or value to life, in a universe devoid of meaning and value... because the moment those who knew you are gone, you will never have existed at all.

if you see anyone not screaming at the top of their lungs THE SKY IS FALLING BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING! then for prophet Gore's sake help them see the light that doing so is the only means we have of getting off fossil fuel.
