Footage of the moment a passenger was forced to land a light aircraft after his pilot fell ill has been released.
John Wildey, who had never flown a plane before, successfully landed the aircraft at Humberside airport on his fourth attempt after being guided through the process by a flight instructor on the ground.
The moment was captured by a camera mounted on an RAF helicopter.
A friend of the passenger who landed a plane after the pilot was taken ill said he was "nothing short of a hero".
Richard Tomlinson, who was also a friend of the pilot, told BBC Radio Sheffield, "For somebody who is not a pilot but has been around airfields and been a passenger on several occasions to take control is nothing short of phenomenal."
Mr Tomlinson said the man who died was a very experienced pilot.
He continued: "Only this week I was sat having a cup of tea and airfield banter [with both men].
"They were both very funny gentlemen to have a conversation with. "It is very, very sad news."
The pilot of the light aircraft who became incapacitated while flying back to Sandtoft airfield during the evening of Tuesday 8 October resulting in an emergency landing at Humberside Airport was sadly pronounced dead last night.
Police are not treating the death as suspicious and as such a file will be prepared for the coroner in order to establish what led to the death of the pilot by way of an inquest.
Formal ID of the pilot is likely to take place later today.
