“Mayday, Mayday, Mayday! I am a passenger. My pilot seems to be unconscious, but I am not a pilot! Over”John Wildey
Thousands of feet above the countryside of Lincolnshire, England, John Wildey suddenly found himself alone, as the pilot in command of a small Cessna airplane. The problem was, he had no piloting experience whatsoever!
This is the incredible true story of how John Wildey landed the airplane when the pilot had a heart attack 1,500 feet above the ground. With a team of amazing people guiding him, John, managed to land the small plane at an international airport in Humberside, UK.
“It’s hard to believe I actually did all this. Here’s little old me – I always wanted to fly but had never done it except as a passenger. Then suddenly doing it and everyone making such a big fuss of it.” – John Wildey
