Emergency plane landing 'hero' meets instructors

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.
