C182 Pilot Lands 757!

Well, not quite but he did help…. Stephen Brown of Albuquerque volunteered to help with cockpit duties after the captain of a Continental 757 collapsed at the yoke. The first officer took over the plane but the Cessna 182 pilot did radios and other tasks that allowed the FO to concentrate on landing the plane. See some articles here and here.

Sounds like quite the adventure, glad it all worked out well but too bad the Cessna driver doesn’t get to log any 757 time in his book.
