On November 19, 2022, at 7:41 PM CST, Envoy flight 3556 became airborne
from the Chicago O’Hare airport destined for Columbus Ohio. Eighteen
minutes later, the flight landed back at the O’Hare Airport with
unconscious captain Patrick Ford in the left seat. After landing and
exiting onto the taxiway, the pilot in the right seat, also a captain,
stopped the aircraft and removed the body from the left seat. This is
probably because the tiller that controls the nose wheel for taxiing can
only be operated from the left seat in this particular aircraft. There
were unsuccessful attempts to revive Patrick before they got to the
gate. He was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
