A Star Air Freight Boeing 767-200, registration OY-SRL performing flight DJ-6497 from Bologna (Italy) to Cologne/Bonn (Germany), was enroute when the first officer began to feel unwell. The aircraft subsequently was descending through about FL260 towards Cologne when the captain took control of the aircraft, declared emergency and performed an automatic landing on Cologne's runway 32R about 15 minutes after declaring emergency. The first officer was taken to a hospital.
