Pilot Dies While Flying American Airlines Flight


The pilot of an American Airlines passenger jet died during a flight from Phoenix to Boston on Monday.

The official did not specify the cause of death but said it was from "illness."

The flight, an Airbus A320 with 147 passengers and five crew members on board, was flying from Phoenix to Boston when the pilot became ill. It was diverted to Syracuse, New York. The co-pilot landed the flight safely shortly after 7 a.m. ET, the airline said.

You never know when your time will come. Luckily there were two pilots in the cockpit, or this could have been an even more tragic situation.
