Patti DeLuna, Flight Attendant Helps Land Plane in a live remake of “Airplane”


Hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Patti DelunaA flight attendant with a pilot’s license who stepped in for a sick co-pilot said the experience was “not your ordinary workday,” but downplayed her role in the safe landing of an American Airlines flight in Chicago, Illinois

DeLuna has a commercial pilot’s license, but has only flown small Cessna planes, and had to ask the pilot “where are the brakes?” she explained. “The view is much better” from the cockpit, she concluded. The plane landed safely.

The life of everyone on board depends upon just one thing: finding someone back there who can not only fly this plane, but who didn’t have fish for dinner. (from  the most hilarious movie, Airplane 1980)
