On Denny Fitch

Denny Fitch should be widely heralded as one of the greatest aviators who ever lived.. He died of brain cancer on Monday and although he was part of one of the greatest feats in the history of aviation, relatively few people recognized the name. He was one of the pilots of the DC-10 that crashed in Sioux City in 1989, after pilots reported they lost all hydraulics (including all of the controls to steer and control the plane) as it approached Minnesota airspace.
