Amazing: 80-year-old non-pilot lands plane safely

An emergency in the skies over Door County, Wisconsin led an 80-year-old woman to land a small plane on her own.

Helen Collins got instructions from other pilots to help her land the plane after her husband suffered a heart attack at the controls.

Audio from the whole incident, including Helen’s conversations with other pilots, was recently released.

It was far from a perfect landing but Helen kept her cool and brought the plan in safely.
