Nice story, apart from the fact your header is 100% wrong. The off-duty pilot didn't land anything, and why would he when the skipper is still occupying the LH seat?

Well, it's not his line, is it?

That's the witless headline in the Grauniad.

I would have expected the OP to have actually read the article before posting here with a misleading header. Plenty of clues the off-duty pilot did not handle the controls ...

the man who stepped in was fully licensed to operate and fly the 747
A bit different to a Dad leaving his wife and kids in the back and with no flying experience offering to be Mr super Hero and landing a 747

Non event with media hunting for a headline
