"Al Haynes. Pilots mention his name with reverence." A quote from Captain Sullenberger's book Highest Duty. That's how I felt when I met Captain Haynes in 1998. He was humble and professional, and what he spoke of the most was the 112 people who didn't survive 232. I've never forgotten that.
Another great example of professionalism, skill, and humility. Al, my father, Bill, and Dudley saved a great many lives that day, but they never forgot the aftermath. May you find the peace you have earned, Captain, Godspeed
Unforgettable event. God Speed Captain.
I didn't catch any mention of Al Haynes' passing in the media. Congrats to FlightAware for honoring this hero!
Too many other more important stories of politician's lips flapping.
NPR did a 3-4 minute piece on him earlier this week. heard it on KJZZ. don't remember any of the TV nets mentioning it.
