Pilot Dies In Flight, Plane Lands Safely

Continental flight 61, en route from Brussels to Newark, landed safety around noon today at Newark International Airport, after the pilot died mid-flight.

The airline reported that the 60-year-old Newark-based pilot died of natural causes.

The crew only told passengers there was a medical emergency but many realized something bigger may have happened when fire trucks and medical personnel met the plane on the runway.

The airline said the pilot had 32 years of service with Continental.
