Pilot Michael Johnston dies during American Airlines flight

Medical emergencies are rare, but hardly unprecedented in commercial flights. It&;s far less common when they involve the plane&;s pilot -- and that pilot dies. That&;s what happened Monday on an American Airlines flight between Phoenix and Boston. Captain Michael Johnston, 57, was piloting the plane when he fell ill somewhere en route. The co-pilot landed the jet safely. An autopsy and preliminary toxicology tests "showed that the death was the result of natural diseases," the O-non-daga County, New York, medical examiner&;s office said -- without offering specifics.
