The flight engineer reassures the crew of the struggling freight airplane -- OK, it's clear now! One second later the plane explodes on the ground, taking three lives and eight million dollars of material with it. This collection of horrific crashes includes overviews of the events, descriptions of the flights, transcripts of the cockpit recordings, and explanations of the investigations and Probable Causes, ranging from the crash of the Zeppelin airship Hindenburg in 1937 to the events of September 11, 2001, and the loss of the NASA space shuttle, Columbia, in 2003. Sturkey, a retired military and commercial pilot, writes for fellow professionals but carefully considers general readers with interests in aviation, focusing on the educational aspects of each crash, giving sound advice (no one ever collided with the sky) and providing photos and illustrations of events and their aftermath. --SciTech Book News
We just received MAYDAY here in New York. From our read it looks like a best seller. The topics raised are very important ones which the flying public needs to know. --D.J. Donnelly Productions LTD
