How the pilot started losing his sight


A pilot who suddenly went blind while flying his plane at 5,500 ft has been guided in to land by an RAF plane.

A plane was sent from the RAF's Linton-on-Ouse base to help Jim O'Neill land his two-seater Cessna after he suffered a suspected stroke.

Jim's son, Douglas O'Neill, said he thought his father was recovering well, and would be back in a plane as soon as he could be.
