Captain Al Haynes, UA232 in Sioux City, dead at 87

I met him twice. Arnie Jackson (gone west), a neighbor and good friend of mine was also a UAL DC-10 captain, and they had flown together several times.

Al Haynes was a true hero, and had a great run. R.I.P., Captain.

When the Sioux City tower told him he was cleared to land on "any runway," Haynes responded with a chuckle, "Oh, you're gonna be specific and make it a runway."

Capt. Al Haynes . . . a true professional and class act.
Rest in peace . . . on your final check west.
