Default AA pilot dies after medical episode on flight

Very sad news from American Airlines

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An American Airlines pilot died after having a medical episode just before landing in Albuquerque.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2oBo8K5) that the captain declared a medical emergency on flight 1353 a couple of minutes before landing at Albuquerque International Sunport on Wednesday evening.

A spokesman for the airline tells the newspaper that the captain landed the flight from Dallas-Fort Worth without incident. The plane taxied normally to a gate and was met by paramedics. American Airlines first officer William "Mike" Grubbs was pronounced dead.

There was no immediate word on a cause of death.
In 2015, an American Airlines pilot died on a flight from Phoenix to Boston.

So sad he passed. It does show the need for two pilots.
