In April 2012, 81-year-old John Collins suffered a heart attack while flying his small plane over Wisconsin. His wife, Helen, 80, was in the passenger's seat. Helen had no pilot's license, and had only undergone basic take-off and landing training thirty years prior.

Helen suffered a back injury and cracked rib, and has since gained national attention for her unbelievable poise and control.
