I just read about you and the day of the crash in Iowa and the fact that you did what you did in that plane many people are alive today.

Danny ... it's 2016 and I came to know about you now. I think whosoever will watch or read about incident of flight 232 in next 100s years that guy will look for you on web.

You were and will be mine real life hero. I am so touched and proud of your heroic act. I can't explain in words how I am feeling. You are a real role model.

It's sad that I can't talk and express to you how much your story has touched me.

My deep respect Hero.

Rest in peace Danny. I hold you in highest veneration. People accepting responsibility the way you did deserve much more than a Polaris reward. I know you will keep on looking over us pilots and your dearest from high above. Thanks Danny for your inspiration.

I'm very sorry Denny, to have learned of your passing. I just watched the documentary and was googling you to see whether it would be possible to meet you. I wanted very much to shake your hand. Very best, Frank

I will never forget you. Rest in peace. Thank you for everything you have ever done. When times are tough, i think of you and that quote you used to always say. "Your attitude determines your altitude". Love you forever

I never knew or even met Mr. Fitch. I only know him from that miracle in Sioux City. 185 souls owe their lives to Mr. Denny Fitch and the rest of that amazing flight crew. No one should have survived except for the exceptional skill of Denny. It's astounding to think that that aircraft even LANDED at all. By all rights, it should have FALLEN from the sky -- save for an exceptional and brilliant pilot, Denny Fitch.

The 111 who sadly didn't survive now have the chance to shake Denny's hand, smile and say, "Thanks, heck of a job."

You've traded your flight wings for angel's wings, guiding and guarding pilots everywhere.

RIP, Denny.
