PPL pilot had to take control of a chartered King Air 200 when the pilot had some kind of medical emergency. Scroll down for the audio, interesting listening!

Wow! What an amazing job by the pilot and ATC. Truly touching story that could have ended real bad. The guy flying was pretty damned chill for the situation, though towards the end we can hear the tension. Great story! Thanks for sharing.!
