When the pilot passes out, this is how you land a massive 737 aircraft

So, uh, what exactly happens when both pilots on your transatlantic flight pass out and nobody else knows how to work the airplane? Unfortunately, if you watch the next video, 200 or more souls will be relying on you to land the plane safely. So watch at your own risk.

Pilot Tim Morgan made this video tutorial for non-pilots in the event of an in-flight emergency on a 737-800 plane. Morgan takes us through how to communicate with air traffic control, how to work the autopilot systems and even how to manually land on a runway.

He created the video for the Quora question ‘What should I do if the pilot passes out and I (with no flight training) have to land the plane?’
