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.

I just now found out you passed... I'm a young pilot in training and you are a big inspiration to me. I hope that I have the courage and bravey that you had in 1989. Rest in peace and look over us future pilots! my heart is heavy knowing you're gone.

Man! I didn't realize he'd died. What an incredible guy. The interview he did with Errol Morris in Errol Morris' First Person (the one entitled "Leaving the Earth") about his experience in the Sioux City flight is the most absorbing hour I've ever spent; really impressive, and strangely, made me feel better about flying, knowing pilots like that are looking out for us. He was really something!

As I watch the news of the crash in San Francisco today I am reminded of how fortunate I was to witness the talk that Denny Fitch gave when I was employed at MBNA. I have never forgotten that speech and to this day I thank every pilot for getting me to my destination safely -- all because of the expertise and selflessness of Denny Fitch. Thank you Mr. Fitch.
