American airline pilot and a regular guest speaker at social events. Haynes gained international fame in 1989, when he, together with the rest of his crew and Dennis E. Fitch, a United DC-10 flight instructor who was a passenger on the flight, limited the loss of life by crash-landing United Airlines Flight 232, a damaged DC-10 jetliner, at Sioux City Airport.
After the crash, Haynes continued as an airline pilot until his mandatory retirement in 1991. Several United 232 survivors flew as passengers on his final flight as an airline pilot. Haynes received major media attention when Charlton Heston played him in a 1992 movie "A Thousand Heroes." The story of Flight 232 was famous worldwide, and Haynes started speaking about it at lunches and meetings. He also became a post traumatic stress disorder speaker and emergency situations trainer.
Alfred C. Haynes died on 25 August 2019 at age 87.
