Man Can’t Fly, Lands Plane Anyway

Straight out of “My Time To Shine” or “Oh Crap” depending on your comfort level comes this story about a passenger turned instant pilot. Darren Harrison was on a small plane when the pilot become unresponsive. Harrison, taking control of the situation, hopped into the pilot seat and got down to business.

After leveling out the airplane he radioed Palm Beach Airport for assistance. It was in that tower that one of the controllers walked him through the entire landing procedure. Controller Bobby Morgan is a flight instructor and was able to verbally guide the plane to the airport and get it landed safely. Truly amazing. The video telling more of this story is below.
