A passenger with no flying experience made an emergency landing in a light aircraft in Britain after the pilot became ill, officials said Wednesday.
He safely brought down the four-seater Cessna 172 on Tuesday evening with the help of two instructors on the ground, a spokesman for Humberside Airport in eastern England said.
The passenger was unhurt although police said the pilot later died, without giving details. The pair were the only ones onboard.
One of the instructors who helped talk the passenger down, Roy Murray, said he did a "remarkable job".
