MOSCOW, Russia — The only thing the passengers heard was a flight attendant asking if there was a doctor on board.
There wasn't, according to the Russian-owned news network RT. There was no one who could help the Aeroflot airline pilot who suffered a heart attack in the cockpit during a flight from Moscow to a resort town on the Black Sea.
The Daily Mirror reports it happened Sunday at 33,000 feet, and the 49-year-old pilot was pronounced dead in an ambulance after the Airbus 320 made an emergency landing.
RT's reporting seems to indicate the pilot wasn't feeling well before takeoff. An airline spokesperson said he had complained of chest pain, but he passed a pre-flight physical.
