Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Pilot is Dead

A Continental Airlines flight departing from Houston succumbed to an emergency landing yesterday after its pilot died. Fortunately, the co-pilot took over and flew the plane to safety. A new crew later steered the plane to its Mexican destination. No word yet on what the crew told the passengers; it's also not clear precisely when the pilot died or why. But Continental seems convinced his death owed to natural causes. A stark reminder of why we need multiple pilots aboard a plane!
