It’s been fifteen years since the tragic crash of a jetliner in Iowa.Captain Al Haynes is still in demand as a lecturer, telling pilots and others how he landed a crippled airliner in Sioux City after a catastrophic engine and control failure. 112 people died in the crash landing but 182 survived. Now a series of ceramic photo tiles have been created, bearing a picture of the Flight 232 memorial that’s on the Sioux City Riverfront. Haynes will sign all 200 of the tiles today (Monday) and will also sign 35 copies of the book “Speaking of Flying,” a collection of tales from pilots including Haynes. Money from the memorial will go for scholarships at Western Iowa Tech Community College. Also today Haynes will meet with some of the rescue workers and survivors of the crash to commemorate the anniversary.
