A passenger is being credited with carrying out “mission impossible” after landing a private plane in Florida when the pilot suffered a medical emergency.

The unbelievable achievement by a man with no aviation experience took place at Palm Beach International Airport on Tuesday, WPBF-TV reports.

“I’ve got a serious situation here,” the passenger told Air Traffic Control from about 70 miles north of his final destination. “My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane.”

“Roger,” ATC responded. “What’s your position?”

The passenger said he had no idea but could see the coast of Florida.

“Maintain wings level and just try to follow the coast, either north or southbound,” Air Traffic Control told him. “We’re trying to locate you.”

Controllers located him after several minutes in Boca Raton. They helped coach him through a safe landing.

“You just witnessed a couple passengers land that plane,” a controller said over the radio.

“Did you say the passengers landed the airplane?” one person asked.

“That’s correct,” the controller said.

“Oh my gosh. Great job,” he said.

“No flight experience,” the controller added.

Jet Blue pilot Justin Dalmolin, who landed right after the miracle landing, told the outlet the passenger’s ability was “absolutely incredible.”

STOP! Why are you still using ATT and Verizon Wireless? They promote the cancel culture mob. That’s why I’ve made the switch to Patriot Mobile, America’s only Christian Conservative wireless carrier. Click here for info!

“The incredible part is not just flying the aircraft but obviously the most difficult thing which is configuring the aircraft for approach and landing,” Dalmolin said. “And then landing it, and that to me, for a zero-time pilot.”

The name of the passenger and the pilot have not been released as the FAA investigates the situation.
