Co-pilot passes out during flight
On Monday, an American Airlines pilot died in the cockpit during a flight.
The next day, passengers flying on United Airlines witnessed another scare in the cockpit when the co-pilot passed out mid air.
The plane was bound for San Francisco from Houston and had to make an emergency landing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a result.
The co-pilot was able to walk off the aircraft when the plane landed and he is said to be OK.

An airport spokesman told KOAT that passengers waited at the airport for another four hours before boarding again.
"United was able to bring in another pilot so they left on the same aircraft...Overall the passengers seem to be very grateful and very happy that everything turned out the way it did."
