YERSTERDAY a pilot passed away at the controls of a leer jet with 5 passengers aboard.
one aboard who has a liscence to fly single engine planes took control and was talked down by a pilot trainer on the ground 7 states away threw the local control tower.
amazing-just like in the movies.

Not quite a Leer Jet, it was a twin turbo Super King Air. Here's our union press release. Good job guys!
Great Job by all!
I have Comm, Multi- and IFR ratings, but it's been a long time since I've flown! That would be tough to do under those circumstances!

Ummm...isn't the ATP Physical supposed to keep people who might die in flight from...you know...flying?
CFI in the tower did a good job - it's a big leap from single engine to multi, especially a HP Multi...
Really is a shame that these wonderful controlers are taking 30% pay cuts.

It is worthy of squaking 7500
I saw this and was just like Holy $hit!!!! I feel bad for the pilot I'm just happy someone was capable of landing the plane to help the remaining passengers survive. RIP for the Pilot.
It is like a movie.
