    It was good he was on board. Although rare and incapacitated pilot is scary and the lone pilot has his hands full for sure!

    Thank goodness it worked out!!!

    Very fortunate he was aboard. I bet the F/O was extremely grateful.

    I forget did they ask any one on Airport 1975 if there was a pilot aboard or did Karen Black just takeover and try to fly the 747? Have to check that one.
