I enjoyed the book and at the end I looked at several references to other books. One of these was "A missing plane" by Susan Sheehan. It seems that the plane crashes were similar except that they were in different locations and on this particular plane there were no survivors and the actual wreckage was not discovered until the 1980's. What's curious to me here is how in "Shangrila", the option to use helicopters for rescue was ruled out due to atmospheric and geographical conditions. Yet, in "Missing Plane", helicopters were used several times to ferry investigators to and from the crash site. Now surely helicopters were more advanced in 40 years or was the location of "Missing plane" different in altitude and atmospheric conditons to allow them? I'd like to know one way or the other.

I had already read an excellent detailed account of this story in the magazine "WORLD WAR II" by the author BILLY A. REA in the NOVEMBER 2004 issue with the title 'RESCUED FROM SHANGRI-LA"...Nice to see someone finally wrote a book on it.
