A passenger on a private plane with no flying experience miraculously landed the plane at Florida airport after the pilot became incapacitated.
This crazy scene took place on Tuesday when the incredible hero was caught on audio telling air traffic control that he had “no idea” how to fly the plane.
CNN reported that the unidentified passenger said in the LiveATC.net audio:
“I’ve got a serious situation here,”
“My pilot has gone incoherent, and I have no idea how to fly the airplane.”
To which the air traffic controller said:
“Roger. What’s your position?”
“Try to hold the wings level and see if you can start descending for me. Push forward on the controls and descend at a very slow rate,”
“Try to follow the coast, either north or southbound. We’re trying to locate you.”
This is brand new video (courtesy of Jeff Chandler) of a passenger landing a plane today at PBIA.
His pilot had passed out, and the passenger with zero flight experience was forced to land the plane.

The plane was carrying two people, as well as the pilot, was at an altitude of 91,00ft and was guided to safety at Palm Beach International Airport.
What a hero!
