King Air N559DW EPILOGUE (The Rest of The Story) Doug White

This King Air N559DW Epilogue follows up the incredible story of the passenger with minimal private pilot flying experience was forced to take control and land a King Air B200 Turboprop due to the sudden death of the pilot shortly after takeoff on Easter Sunday 2009. Here is the YouTube link for PILOT DIES, Passenger Lands King Air

Courtesy of Doug White, the pinch hitter King Air Hero Pilot, we have an inside look at a very special NATCA ceremony one year later where all of the air traffic controllers who assisted the emergency King Air received an Archie League Medal of Safety award. The Archie League award is considered to be the highest honor in the air traffic control profession.

KING AIR Passenger Lands Airplane After PILOT DIES.

Passenger lands airplane after pilot dies in flight. King Air 200 N559DW Emergency landing after pilot becomes unconscious in flight. Can a passenger land a plane?
Passenger Doug White commandeers plane after pilot loses consciousness
White: When I touch down ... If I ever touch down, do I just cut the throttle?
The aircraft was carrying White, his wife and two daughters from Marco Island, Florida to Mississippi.
Controllers helped him turn off autopilot, land plane: The turn looks good, very good sir
It's a nightmarish scenario straight out of the movies: A passenger is forced to land a plane after its pilot becomes incapacitated.
Passenger Doug White landed this Super King two-engine turboprop after the pilot fell unconscious.
Descend and maintain 5,000. Just take your time, we'll set you up for the airport, an air traffic controller says.
In a calm voice, the passenger responds: I need to get my throttle set for this descent. I don't know where to set it at.
The reality was playing aboard a plane over Florida on Sunday April 12th in what the National Air Traffic Controllers Association called an Easter miracle.
The incident began about 1:30 p.m. The plane, a Super King Air two-engine turboprop with four passengers on board, was headed to Jackson, Mississippi, from Marco Island, Florida, about 18 miles south of Naples.
The plane entered the jurisdiction of air traffic control at Miami Center, the facility responsible for high-altitude air traffic in southern Florida and the Caribbean, according to a statement issued by the air traffic controllers association.
The pilot notified controllers that the plane was at 9,000 feet and climbing, said Steve Wallace, Miami Center spokesman for the association. However, a controller at the center tried twice to raise the pilot after that and received no response, Wallace said. Video Hear audiotape of emergency landing »
After a few moments, a different voice came over the radio: Passenger Doug White told air traffic controllers the pilot was unconscious and they needed help. His wife and two teenage daughters were flying home to Louisiana with him, he said. Video Listen to White describe seeing the pilot's eyes roll back in his head »
He reported the plane's autopilot was on and the plane was continuing to climb from 10,000 feet.
White told air traffic controllers it appeared the pilot had died, according to the statement, and he reported that the plane's autopilot was on and the plane was continuing to climb from 10,000 feet.

Two air traffic controllers worked to help him disengage the autopilot, as other controllers stepped in to lighten their workload. Keep it coming around when you can ... the turn looks good, very good sir, a controller said.
The controllers then turned the plane over to air traffic controllers at the airport. One of them had called a friend who was certified in the King Air planes for advice.

They walked him through flipping the switches, turning the knobs, Wallace said.
White, who was composed for the most part, seemed doubtful for a brief moment. When I touch down ... If I ever touch down, do I just cut the throttle or what? he asks. The landing was successful.
I knew we had to do something ... I knew that much, White told WINK.
If you were to ask any one of the controllers who worked this even about what happened over the skies of south Florida, they would tell you that it was just a typical day at the office and that it was merely their job, association President Patrick Forrey said in the statement. However, the actions they all took to save the passengers aboard the flight were beyond heroic.
Victoria Moreland, spokeswoman for Southwest Florida International Airport, said the pilot's passing was confirmed after the plane landed. The cause was unclear, Moreland said.
According to the most recent report, which covers the year 2007, out of 22 million general aviation flight hours, an estimated 15 million to 20 million flights, only six instances of a pilot's medical incapacitation were reported, he said. In four of those instances, the pilot never made it. This video is made by X-Plane 11 realism.

15 year old student lands boeing 737-800 after training himself with dvd's, manuals & games

Hi everybody,
It has been 6 years since I posted this school project. It was a my personal project for my MYP education.
Since I have been fascinated by aviation ever since I was a child it made total sense to me to choose an aviation linked subject for my project.
I asked Paul (owner of this channel) to post this project on youtube only because the file was too big for my USB stick.
I was pleasantly surprised by the number of views and the nice comments I got over the following years.
-- --Fast Forward six Years ----
I am 21 now and I am in the final stage of my pilot training. Remarkably enough I am now in the sim again for my 737 NG type rating. In 4 months I will be flying as a co-pilot for TUIFLY.

If you wanna see how things have- and are developing in my career as a pilot you are welcome to follow me on my Instagram
For me it is a dream come true.

Hope you will enjoy it!

Ps. By now i have mastered the fine art of landing right at the centerline ????

MANDATORY ONSCREEN CREDIT - Family Pilot

A cool-headed amateur pilot successfully completed an emergency landing with his family onboard after a major technical issue.

Though Devin Miller, 33, works in consumer marketing in Texas, his hobby and passion is flying planes.

While flying wife Melanie and their two young children from Atlanta to Houston on September 1, Devin planned to land at their scheduled fuel stop in Mississippi.

However, when Devin began to slow the plane and line up the approach to land, to his shock and horror he realised the performance of the controls were not responding to his inputs.

Our condolences to H Collins, but an amazing job landing the plane, especially since she has no flying experience! One engine had already run dry and she landed it single engine.

Assistance was provided by Catherine and Robert Vuksanovic. Cherryland Airport manager Keith Kasbohm contacted them for assistance in talking her down.

Doug White Lands King Air

Doug White lands King Air with amazing help from ATC Easter Sunday, 2009 after his pilot dies shortly after takeoff.

Doug White King Air Landing - Full Flight Radar Overlay N559DW

MIAMI/FORT MYERS, Fla. In what can only be called an Easter miracle several air traffic controllers in Southern Florida were able to guide a plane to a successful landing after its pilot fell unconscious and a passenger had to fly the aircraft all during a heavy traffic push due to the holiday and good weather.

Said NATCA President Patrick Forrey: If you were to ask any one of the controllers who worked this event about what happened over the skies of South Florida they would tell you that it was just a typical day at the office and that it was merely their job however, the actions they all took to save the passengers aboard the flight were beyond heroic. They all went above and beyond the call of duty and it is times like these that I hope the flying public can see the invaluable lifeline that controllers provide every day and particularly in emergency situations. These men and women are true heroes and Im proud to be in the same profession as them.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Sunday a Super King Air two-engine turboprop aircraft, N559DW, carrying four passengers flying from Marco Island, Fla. to Jackson, Miss. entered into the jurisdiction of air traffic control at Miami Center the facility responsible for high-altitude air traffic in both Southern Florida and the Caribbean. A controller at the center tried twice to acknowledge the aircrafts presence and issue climb instructions, waiting for a read-back.

The transmission that then came from N559DW was a passenger stating that the pilot was unconscious and that they needed help immediately. From that point forward every controller working in that jurisdiction area began to lighten the load of the two controllers who began to work the incident one of whom was called in because of her extensive pilot experience.

The passenger who radioed in was a private pilot, but was only certified in single-engine aircraft and had never flown a King Air. He informed air traffic control that the autopilot was on and that it was continuing to climb the aircraft from 10,000 feet. He then informed air traffic control that he needed to know how to take the plane off autopilot and how to land, then informing them that it appeared that the pilot had passed away.

A third controller at Miami Center stepped in to coordinate the rerouting of all aircraft in that area and transmitted emergency information to those at Ft. Myers International Airport. The controller with pilot-experience talked to the passenger to help him fly the plane and another controller worked traffic in the same area all three working on the same radio frequency.

Quickly developing a system that enabled them to effectively share the frequency they would tap ones shoulder to transfer and relinquish control on the radio channel. One would advise the passenger and then another would issue control instructions to other aircraft.

Due to the hard work of the controllers and the expertise that the one had in flying aircraft the passenger was able to get the plane off autopilot and steer the aircraft toward Ft. Meyers International Airport, transferring control to the controllers who worked that airspace.

The controllers at Ft. Meyers then took over the flight. One called a friend who was certified in the King Air for advice. When the friend had gotten out his flight checklists, manuals and cockpit layout sheets he was able to issue instructions through the controller to another controller who then relayed that information to the passenger flying the plane.

Because of this quick thinking the passenger-turned-pilot was able to safely land the aircraft on the first try.

Beech King Air Tragedy & Triumph - Doug White

There is now a new and improved version of this video published April 2020 on the FS MaNiA Channel The new version includes additional content including sub-titles, ATC comments, comments by Doug White, and more.

Easter Sunday, April 12th, 2009, a Beech King Air B200 departed Marco Island, Florida bound for Louisiana with 5 souls on board. Soon after takeoff, an emergency situation developed that required extraordinary measures by the planes passengers and Air Traffic Controllers. This video is a recreation of that flight and is intended to honor and pay tribute to the pilots.

I have used actual published radar tracks and numerous published interviews and news reports to determine as close as possible the flight path, altitudes, headings, and other pertinent details of this flight. Due to a relatively erratic flight path following the emergency, some airspeeds, altitudes, and headings, may vary slightly from the actual flight. The actual ATC recording of the communications with the King Air are included in their entirety.

The King Air used for this flight is by Carenado. The Fort Myers Scenery is by LatinVFR. Please refer to the About tab on our home channel page for more information on hardware and software specs.
