    Wife takes over plane when pilot-husband can't fly:confused:

    DENVER -- Authorities say a woman took over the controls of a small airplane when her pilot-husband started having trouble breathing and speaking on a flight from California to Colorado.

    Ground controllers in Colorado and a Great Lakes Airlines pilot in another plane helped her guide the craft.

    KCNC-TV in Denver reports the 70-year-old pilot recovered in time to land the plane safely in Farmington, N.M.:confused:
