Pilot dies midflight, plane lands safely
During the flight from Brussels to Newark, the 60-year-old pilot allegedly died of "natural causes" (the first doctor to respond in the air reports that it was likely a heart attack). Passengers weren't told of the death, and fight attendants continued serving snacks. A relief pilot on board took over, and with another co-pilot safely finished the flight.
Emergency crews met the plane as a precaution, but the Boeing 777 touched down without incident, and on time.
