Florida media and news outlets are looking for an unidentified passenger who landed alone on a passenger plane after the pilot passed out.

Flight recordings showed the unidentified passenger telling the airport control tower that he “had no idea how to stop the plane”.

The airport’s air traffic controller, who teaches new pilots, helped escort the passenger and land at Palm Beach International Airport on Tuesday afternoon.

The two met on the tarmac for a hug, but didn’t exchange names.
