A passenger helped land a jumbo jet with 264 people on board at Dublin Airport.

A potential disaster was averted when the man came from the cabin of the Boeing 747 to assist after one of the pilots became too ill to fly.

Air accident investigators and emergency crews were already assembled on the ground.

"It was a miracle," a source told the Herald. "It had all the elements of a Hollywood movie but thankfully one with a happy ending."
