The passenger who landed a plane after the pilot collapsed at the controls that he was "terrified".
When John Wildey was told the flight instructor that guided him down said he would make a good pilot, he told ITV News, "I doubt it, I was sat there as white as a sheet".
"It's very nice of him to say so but I was terrified to be honest," he continued.
"I'd love to go up again," Mr Wildey said, laughing, "I have got a free lesson from a friend down South that I was supposed to have done two, three weeks ago, but the cloud was down".
