Pilot dies in mid air

Post by Admin on Fri Jun 19, 2009 3:49 pm

An airline pilot died in mid-flight yesterday - but his jet landed safely.

Two co-pilots took control after Fred Lenell, 60, collapsed in the cockpit. Dr Julien Struyzen, who was among the 247 passengers, was summoned but found that he was already dead. Captain Lenell's devastated wife Lynda said: "The co-pilots thought he was sleeping, that he had nodded off, and he couldn't wake him."

Passengers were unaware of the situation during Continental Airlines' Flight 61 from Brussels to New York and no announcement was made. Dr Struyzen said: "The other pilots and crew were very professional." The captain's body was moved into the crew rest area of the Boeing 777.

The airline said the pilot, who had worked for the firm for 21 years, appeared to have died of natural causes. A statement added: "The crew included an additional relief pilot who took the place of the deceased pilot. "The flight continued safely with two pilots at the controls."
