Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You mention the story of flight 232. I remember reading this story, it's also an amzing feat of flying, which can be found here: http://www.clear-prop.org/aviation/haynes.html.

It's long, but it's an amazing read.

Yes, Flight 232 is well known among pilots.
Also a TV-film , featuring Charlton Heston was made about it.
