Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book has a mountain of detail about flight safety in the 1958-1968 time frame, but it was a lengthy slog.

Some parts we enjoyable and engaging like the Electra Story, but others were quite dry recantation of facts. Overall, it took me a while to get through, though the frequent misogynistic comment put the book in it's place as a not very scholarly work from 1970.

I had the original edition of this book and somehow lost it, but now it's back. This explains how aircraft accidents happen in clear language, and some accidents (in which everyone survives) even have some humor in them, like the jet that lost half a wing but was still flyable. Wild and woolly stuff, but well told.

I became a flight attendant in 1968, in early 1969 there were 3 totally fatal airline crashes out of LAX. My Mother insisted I quit flying. I bought this book and found it fascinating, the information, detail and investigation that went into it, monumental. I lost track of my copy of this long out of print book and went to Amazon to locate it. And, I DID! Thanks to this great bookseller and Amazon. The condition of the book was better than I'd hoped and price was well worth it! Recommend them very highly.

Paperback arrived in good condition. This was ordered as a back-up copy of one of the best written aviation novels ever. The Electra Story (included in this paperback) is worth the price of the book.
