I totally forgot that that skit led into the lumberjack song.

However you feel about David Koch he got the same as everybody else.

I'm not looking forward to the +-1% uploading consciousness.

Rest in Pain, David Koch.

Years ago, mostly in the '50s and '60s, trying to get a look at automobiles under development was a sport.
A guy named Jim Dunne made it his profession, photographing primarily American cars using subterfuge, gate-crashing, and long-lenses.
A very interesting fellow who died this week at 87.

Sadly this guy isn't/wasn't famous.

But he should have been.

Alfred C. Haynes was an airline pilot that crash-landed a DC-10 in Sioux City, Iowa with almost no controls (no hydraulics) after a catastrophic rear engine failure. 111 people died, but more importantly, thanks to Mr. Haynes and the crew, 185 survived.

You may remember the video of the crash with plane cartwheeling into the picture way short of the runway:



Mr. Haynes was 87 years old.

I remember Capt. Haynes and the Sioux City accident.

It was a remarkable feat of airmanship to have put the aircraft down under the circumstances without greater loss of life.

By coincidence, in my book stack I have 'Flight 232' by Laurence Gonzales which is an account of the flight and subsequent investigation.

I've just moved it to the top.

RIP Captain.
