Nice video about an emergency

Just stumbled upon this video.
A passenger with minimal flight experience in a 172 landing a King Air at Fort Myers because his pilot sadly died shortly after takeoff.
The video is a reconstruction of the events based on radar data and all the audio.


Best line in the whole video, “What taxiway you want pard?”

Awesome video.

These things, or very similar, happen more than ppl realize. Not often but it’s not unusual either.

EDIT: And the shear amount of coordination going on behind the scenes (off radio) that you can’t hear can be a little ‘terse’.
