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.

the US exports death and corruption globally on a scale undrempt by Iranian authorities. war for corporate profits funded by taxpayers and soldiers' lives plus unofficial war funded by drugs to minorities. wave that flag of corruption in blissful ignorance of the orphans it creates assisting the rich to get richer. it's all good though cause we don't need to do ANYTHING to change... mother nature will create the necessary change.
