This is a very well researched, and well done book for anyone who's ever wondered about looking for crashed aircraft . McCurry's research and lots of clear color photos of the sites and wreckage, coupled with the backstory makes this one a page turner. He's also included dozens of coordinates that can be found on GOOGLE EARTH of other wreck sites, some of it in pretty remote locations. a good buy for any airplane nut.

An appropriate, more accurate title for this book should be, "Military" Aircraft Wrecks of the Pacific Northwest, because that's all this book lists and talks about. As a air SAR volunteer in Washington State, I was looking forward to this book because I am familiar with the back story on quite a few of the hundreds of plane wrecks that are scattered throughout this state. However, I was disappointed to see that the author chose to highlight only military crashes with a couple of airline incidents thrown in as an afterthought.

And that's the rub with me. It seems to me that the "wreck chaser" community seem to have some sort of fixation on military crash sites. That's all they discuss on their message boards and websites as if these are some sort of shrines or holy sites. I do not belittle the sacrifices of our military and those who died in these crashes - I served over 20 years in the U.S. Army. However, with all this focus on military crash sites, many very compelling and interesting stories are over looked in the many civil and general aviation crash sites that dot the West Coast. I should know. I participated in searches for many of these aircraft that went missing in California, Washington and Oregon over the last 40 years.

For those who may still be interested in this book, it has 33 chapters, each devoted to a military plane crash. Each chapter details the circumstances in which the aircraft crashed and a description of the crash site today. Each chapter has plenty of photos including photos of what the crash site looks like today. One thing I am uneasy about is that the author provides too much information on crash locations that I'm afraid more people will venture out to these sites and plunder them.
