    This is my last landing in the Metroliner. Not going to miss it all that much. No autopilot, no flight director, no first officer, flying 5 hour legs SUCKED, but it sharpened my flying skills quite a bit. The beeping is the trip audible warning, which makes it eases the control pressure, making it easier to control. @jobberone

    Pretty cool...

    I live by Hill AFB, and I always wondered what would happen to an F-16 if the pilot had a heart attack and died while in the air?

    If the autopilot is engaged, it will fly it's course and altitude until it runs out of gas. Google the Payne Stewart crash. If autopilot is not engaged, a crash is imminent.

    I just noticed a typo in the OP. The beeping is the trim, not trip warning.

    So, there is no way for ground control to get a plane back, say, like a drone?

    In that video, a small cargo operator. Now, I fly for a small charter operation.

    Nice video. Looked like a very smooth landing.

    Hey, CyberBob, I'm sure you already heard of that passenger plane that was on it's way to Hawaii but had to land at some tiny island because of a foul odor on the plane. Passengers were gagging and fanning themselves because of the order.

    Well, my question is, why couldn't the oxygen masks be deployed until they landed? That at least would have let the passengers have some oxygen to breath instead of that foul odor.

    I have no idea. The masks will drop automatically, in case of a lose of cabin pressurization. The crew can always drop the masks manually, if they like. Do you have a link? I haven't heard of it.
