    Pilot dies midflight, FAA says...

    (CNN) -- A captain on a Continental jet died Thursday midflight while flying from Brussels, Belgium, to Newark, New Jersey, the Federal Aviation Administration and Continental Airlines said.

    Continental said the 61-year-old Newark-based pilot died "apparently of natural causes." The pilot had 21 years of service with Continental, the airline said.

    FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac said Continental Flight 61 would receive priority when it arrives at Newark International Airport around noon ET.

    The airline said the crew on the flight included an additional relief pilot who took the place of the deceased man.

    The Boeing 777 is carrying 247 passengers, Continental said.

    Further details were not immediately available.



    "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your first officer speaking, the captain just took a dirt nap, anyone know how to fly this thing?"

    Holy cow....

    Shirley that was fortunate that there was another relief pilot, but he did choose the wrong day to quit breathing.

    So true. Even if there wasn't a relief pilot on board this would have been a non-issue to get the plane on the ground. The first officer would have landed that thing with little to no effort. The plane was a Boeing 777 which can land on its own with a few inputs by the co-pilot. The news has made this sound like the plane would have fallen out of the sky without the relief pilot. Now if the first officer and the relief pilot die.....
    Signature not currently available. You aren't missing much.
