A flight attendant helps land a plane over Chicago

Over the skies of Chicago and O'Hare International airport a co-pilot got sick this week.  So what to do?  Grab one of the flight attendants (who has a pilot's license) and have her help you land the plane!   It all went down Monday of this week on a American Airlines flight from San Fran to Chicago.

  One the pilot discovered the problem they checked on board with the attendants to see if any of them were off-duty pilots and one of them was, a woman.  So she jumped up in the cockpit and helped land the plane safely.  Once on the ground they took the sick co-pilot to a local hospital where he later checked out just fine.

It's about time we have a good news airline story to report on!
