In response to a Quora question, Delta Airlines pilot Tim Morgan gives a detailed explanation on how to land a Boeing 737.

The video is rather detailed but was clearly scripted by someone with extensive knowledge of the aircraft, but not of how to clearly and consistently communicate complex procedures. Just how somebody fumbling through their first minutes in a cockpit would execute suggestions like “Use your feet to steer by pushing on the left or right pedal” is anyone's guess, because how the pedals steer the plane isn't explained.

And then there's the small problem of just how to get this video into a cockpit. If the plane you're on loses its pilots, pray it has WiFi! And that signal reaches the cockpit. And that you can juggle a mobile device and the great many controls in the cockpit.
