An 80-year-old Wisconsin woman successfully landed a twin-engine plane after her pilot husband became unconscious and later died, Fox 11 reports. Authorities say the woman's 81-year-old husband suffered a medical condition while he was at the controls of the plane and lost consciousness. His wife, who had no flying experience, called on the radio for help. The Door County Cherryland Airport in northeast Wisconsin sent a second plane up to help coach the woman down. "She's not a licensed pilot and has very little on flying an aircraft," said Door County Sheriff Terry Vogel. The plane then began to run out of fuel and the right engine lost power. With the help of the second pilot, the woman was able to successfully land the plane. /ex]
