Time:10:11 am
A passenger landed a twin-engine plane in Florida after the pilot died in flight with a total of six people on board.

Dear AP: if you're going to charge a lot for your content, could you at least produce some less-mangled sentences? (No need to click if you don't want to-- that sentence is the lede for that story.)

Of course I used lede correctly. Why is this surprising?

Well it made me stop and look it up.

So I understand why the pilot died, although the people were a bit silly getting on him (or her) while she (or he) was flying the plane. I guess he (or she) could have engaged the auto-pilot before joining in an all-in wrestling bout, but it still seems irresponsible.

I wonder how many people were on the plane?
