ADITL - Al Haynes
Welcome to NonStop Virtual’s Newest Event Series- A Day In The Life (AIDTL) We kick of this exciting new series, with the story of the Legendary Al Haynes which we will be paying tribute to both his heroic action in the sky and to his life as he has recently passed away.
NonStop Virtual warmly invites you to enjoy and experience, “ADITL”, which is a exciting new event series. ADITL is possibly NSV’s most realistic experience. Every Tuesday we take our pilots on historic, mesmerizing, and pioneering flights, that changed aviation. We take things to the extreme as we resemble a day in the life of some amazing pilots,
Alfred Haynes, a pilot who led a United Airlines crew through an extraordinary display of improvised emergency flying that guided a crippled jet to a crash landing in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1989, saving more than 180 of the 296 people on board, died on Aug. 25 2019 in Tacoma, Washington. He was 87 Years Old
His son Dan posted news of his death on Facebook.
Mr. Haynes was captain of United Flight 232 on July 19 when, a little more than an hour into its flight to Chicago from Denver, one of its three engines — the one mounted in the tail — exploded. What happened next has become part of aviation lore, an example of [calm and quick thinking] under the most extreme pressure. Mr. Haynes was piloting a DC-10, which would normally have been able to fly with only its two wing-mounted engines running. But Mr. Haynes; his first officer, William R. Records; and his second officer, Dudley J. Dvorak, quickly realized that they had almost no control over the aircraft. Debris from the explosion had severed the hydraulic lines that enabled the crew to steer the aircraft and control its speed. The plane was in danger of turning upside down.
