‘I felt like I was in a movie’: Air traffic controller describes helping passenger land plane

An air traffic controller who helped a passenger with no flying experience land a plane in Florida when the pilot suddenly fell ill has said the moment “felt like I was in a movie”.

The passenger radioed an urgent plea for help off Florida’s Atlantic coast on Tuesday and was able to land the plane safely with the help of Robert Morgan after the pilot became “incoherent” following a medical emergency.
