Is There A Pilot On Board?

It's every new pilot's daydream but it really happened to Stephen Brown. Brown was one of 210 passengers on a Boeing 757 when the pilot died. The flight attendant asked if there were any licensed pilots on board. Brown raised his hand and was led to the cockpit. The co-pilot switched seats and Brown sat on the right, operating the radios, setting the flaps, and lowering the landing gear.

AVweb has the story.
