    Being in the UK I haven’t heard of the incident.. but I’m guessing they gave out the call “can anybody fly a plane?”
    Surely you can’t be serious

    I'd call it a nightmare, if I weren't a pilot and encountered that, and very uncomfortable (because of the ailment) in any case.

    I'm qualified as a pilot and I would STILL expect to die if that happened, in the absence of the Big Blue button..! Only in America!

    He also had a real good CFI ATC person talking him down and keeping him calm! My hair (what's left of it ) would be on fire!

    I used to live in the West Palm Beach area, and he was darn lucky to be near a major airport with a long runway - even so, as we armchair pilots know, many things can go oh so wrong landing any aircraft. It was truly a downright remarkable feat...
