STURGEON BAY - Lots of people were working behind the scenes to assist in the emergency landing in Door County.
We have some audio recordings from emergency officials that we can share with you now. They give a better picture of the mood, leading up to that hard landing.
Official #1: "They just said that he is unconscious now, just at this time."
Official #2: "He is unconscious now?"
Official #1: "Yeah and the aircraft is circling right now."
Official #2: "Okay, is there anyone able to talk her through it?"
That is part of an audio recording that has been released by the Door County Sheriff's Office. Officials are still trying to figure out exactly what is going on and what to do about it.
"She said she is not a pilot. It's her and her husband only. She does not know anything about flying, whatsoever," said the air traffic controller.
Officials are talking about Helen Collins, who is 2,000 feet up in the air.
On the ground, rescue workers are scrambling to get ready for the emergency landing.
"Her husband was the pilot and she thinks he is having a heart attack right now in the air," said the air traffic controller.
Here at FOX 11, we were also able to hear the rescuing pilot guide Helen to the ground.
That's because their 30 to 40 minute conversation also played out over the police scanner.
The pilot is flying just off of Helen's wing, and coaching her through the radio. He talks to her about how to handle the controls, her airspeed and the position of nose of the airplane.
Over and over, during that conversation the pilot tells Helen that she is doing a great job.
While he coaches her down, she asks him questions, to double check that she is doing things correctly.
At one point, as he double checks with her on procedures... she almost jokes with him asking, "Don't you have any faith in me?"
He tells her that he does, but that he's also double checking with the people on the ground to make sure they know what they're doing.
When Helen does finally land the plane, Robert Vuksanovic, the rescuing pilot is overjoyed, saying, "Great job Helen. Outstanding."
