Emergency plane landing 'hero' meets instructors

6 August 2014 Last updated at 14:07 BST

In October 2013, John Wildey was forced to land a light aircraft at Humberside Airport after the pilot fell ill at the controls.

The 78-year-old had no previous flying lessons and relied on the instructions given to him by air traffic controllers and a helicopter which helped guide him to safety.

Now Mr Wildey has met the helicopter pilot for the first time.

Dan Johnson reports.
