Video:127 Passengers Miraculously Escape Death After Hero Pilot Lands Plane Blind in Istanbul

A hero pilot has saved the lives of 127 passengers by safely landing his hail-damaged plane in conditions of near-blindness.

A severe hailstorm cracked Captain Alexander Akopov’s plane’s windscreen and nose, disabling the autopilot and leaving him and his co-pilot unable to see through the windscreen. Captain Akopov was thus forced to make an emergency landing in treacherous conditions at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport on Thursday, July 27.
