Unusual LandingsPassenger lands plane.
Ok, we've seen it often enough in the movies and have probably thought it was very unlikely. This cool customer in Florida took over when the pilot collapsed was talked down to a successful landing.

Navy fliers trap, on aircraft carriers, but this is the only case I know of a guy trapping on an 18-wheeler!
One lucky pilot. I don't plan to practice this type of landing myself. I did see something similar at an air show one time -- a stunt/aerobatic pilot landed a Super-Cub on a small flat-bed truck doing about 50 mph down the runway. That one was carefully planned, however! Low altitude formation flight, more or less!
