Was just reading through some old threads on this topic about how navigation and landings can now basically be done completely automatically.
So, my question is, are the days of those old "Airport 1975" movie situations over? If both pilots became incapacitated in 2005, could a member of the cabin crew (or passenger) basically just "program the computer" for the plane to arrive safely (more or less!) at it's intended destination?
