In case you were running out of things to worry about

What happens if the pilot on your flight loses his mind after you're in the air?
An Air Canada flight made an emergency landing in Ireland after a pilot apparently suffered a mental breakdown.

A passenger said the pilot was carried from the plane shouting and swearing, saying he wanted to talk "to God".

The flight from Toronto to Heathrow landed at Shannon airport after its crew declared a medical emergency.

Short answer: the rest of the crew mutinies and ties him up. Then they hoist the Jolly Roger and take up a life of buccaneering on the Spanish Main. Okay, I made that last part up.
