    That's a truly sad story. The only good thing was that the rest of the passengers made it safely to Newark.

    Yes, insanity that a 62-yr old man died of natural causes. I've lost faith in humanity...wait, wrong thread sorry.

    RIP pilot and RIP the 250,000-300,000 other people that die everyday for various reasons.

    It's a tribute to the reserve crew that they could step into a situation like that and turn things around. In a case like that, they all need to keep a cool head and take control for the sake of everyone on board.
