Trying to find out the title of a 70's or 80's made for tv movie.  The husband and wife were deeply in love. Husband is a pilot and goes up in a plane, has a heart attack and dies.  Then wife befriends a child that has leukemia and at the end the child dies. HELP!

Probably isn't it, but I found this on

"This has never happened in a big jumbo jet, but there was an early 1980s episode of That's Incredible where they tell the story of a husband-and-wife who went up in his small plane. During the flight, he has a heart attack and falls unconscious. The wife, getting instructions from the aircraft control tower, successfully landed the plane. "

Though, the time frame fits at least and with 30-40 yr old memories a tv show could easily be confused for a TV movie. Who knows there might even have been a tv movie of the week done based on the incident. Perhaps the child with lukemia could have been another part of the same episode. Can't seem to find an episode list. No luck there on either IMDB or

Here's the wiki link FWIW.!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
