Blinded Pilot Lands Plane

by noseycow

A pilot suddenly lost his sight while flying a small plane at 15,000 feet. Initially he though he was being blinded by sunlight, but then realised it was something more sinister.

After sending a ‘mayday’ call for help the RAF sent a plane which shepherded him, and verbally guided him in to land safely.

The pilot was immediately taken to hospital where his condition is described as ‘serious’ following a stroke.
