NEW 2020 EDITION Pilot dies in flight. ***DISCLAIMER*** The Hero passenger who lands the King Air Turbo Prop and saves his family had earned a Private Pilot's License 18 years prior to this incident. He quit flying shortly after with only 80 hours total time logged. On this "Commercial Charter" flight Doug White is flying home after attending his brother's funeral with his wife and daughters on board. The Charter Pilot dies suddenly within minutes after takeoff. Doug is forced to take control of the complex high performance turboprop aircraft with zero experience in a King Air and with zero notice. Dead pilot slumped over the controls and distraught family in the passenger cabin. If you are in anyway offended by these circumstances please do not watch this video. ***END OF DISCLAIMER*** . Previously released in 2015, this new edition includes new content, behind scenes information, interviews with air traffic controllers, super-titles of ATC communications, and more.
On Easter Sunday, April 12th, 2009, Doug White and his family chartered a Beech King Air B200 N559DW for a flight from Marco Island, Florida bound for Louisiana with 5 souls on board. Soon after takeoff, the pilot, 67 year old retired Air Force Colonel Joe Cabuk loses consciousness. creating an emergency situation that required extraordinary measures by the planes passengers and Air Traffic Controllers. This video is a recreation of that flight and is intended to honor and pay tribute to the pilots and air traffic controllers.
I have used actual published radar tracks and numerous published interviews and news reports to determine as close as possible the flight path, altitudes, headings, and other pertinent details of this flight. Due to a relatively erratic flight path following the emergency, some airspeeds, altitudes, and headings, may vary slightly from the actual flight. The actual ATC recording of the communications with the King Air are included in their entirety.
The King Air used for this flight is by Carenado. The Fort Myers Scenery is by LatinVFR. Please refer to the "About" tab on our home channel page for more information on hardware and software specs.

      They could have asked Doug White to switch to the emergency frequency 121.50. ATC: I know you need to stop the climb and you don’t understand how to operate the autopilot. But could we take a few minutes and discuss the complex audio panel and navcom radio stack? King Air 9’r Delta Whiskey Miami Center how do you hear?!? 9’r Delta Whiskey Miami Center!?! Oops 😬. Instead Miami Center wisely and rapidly clears the frequency of all aircraft (extraordinary coordination) within 5 minutes and safely talks the King Air down to a near perfect landing. I think they know how it’s done.

      @greenlandconsulting I'm not trying to split hairs but in this case the "plane" was not cruising! It was climbing at 1,700 feet per minute. If you know anything at all about aerodynamics you understand that a 1,700 fpm climb decreases airspeed as altitude increases. Time was of the essence. The pilot's death was unavoidable but the other four people had a chance to live as long as quick action was taken to stop the climb and fly the plane to a landing as soon as practical. Doug did exactly the right thing and it worked. No amount of Monday morning armchair piloting will save the life of the pilot R.I.P. Cheers, Tim

      The plane can cruise on its own for a while and it makes sense to try to revive the pilot first. The first rule you mention is to fly the plane first - rescuing the pilot is not violating it.

      He died of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. No amount of CPR would have corrected the electrical issue in the heart. He needed at minimum defibrillation and even then the docs said he probably wouldn't have made it. First rule of aviation in an emergency is to fly the plane first. Cheers, Tim

    Every time I watch this I get goosebumps when I hear his voice break when he says “We’re down buddy” and asks where to taxi. He and the Good Lord were helped by an whole unseen host of people at ATC. Everyone kept their cool; I can’t fathom the level of stress for all involved. I’m so glad that everyone kept calm and helped this man to save the lives of his family. RIP to the pilot who passed away.

    Well done Doug. Perhaps plane manufacturers should have an emergency line to call to speak with a pilot expert on their plane, that can give instructions. Oh and when a non-pilot is in an emergency, call him by his first name, not “Sir”, to help him be more relaxed and confident with you and your instructions.
