I greatly enjoyed Channel 4's Mayday: The Passener Who Landed a Plane, which had a dramatic title for a dramatic situation, telling the story of a passenger in a light aircraft who had no flying experience at all and had to take control when the pilot lost consciousness at the controls, and ended up having to be talked through landing it in the dark, not able to see any instruments at all. I bet that the next edition of the manual of "how to talk down someone in an airplane with non-standard control buttons" includes "Is it less than an hour until dusk? Check that they can find the button to switch the lights on". Consisting largely of talking head interviews and footage from an RAF helicopter*, it was budget TV, but absolutely gripping. Should I ever find myself in a light aircraft with a sole pilot, the question I'm going to be asking before we leave the ground is "How do I operate the radio?"
Right, it's half-past one and I have a lot of things left to do. I had better go and do them.
