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.

I dream in my lifetime uhmericans will come to realize hezbollah, hamas, and isis gain followers by helping society AND the only way to defeat them is to perform greater good.

the average person is 8 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a radical terrorist
