Those on a flight to Denver from Des Moines last night are once again on their way to their destination after an unexpected overnight stay in Omaha. The pilot of the United flight became ill and passed out at the controls.
The co-pilot safely landed the plane at Eppley Airfield around 9:30 Monday night. The pilot was taken to Alegent Creighton Medical Center for treatment. There were more than 150 passengers on board and they resumed their travels around noon on Tuesday.
