Sylvia Wrigley’s accounts are professional and devoid of personal bias in her conclusions, whilst being sufficiently informative so as to allow the reader to draw his or her own conclusions. Like her previous book, this book too contains situational illustrations and photographs, although noticeably fewer than the first edition. It is also possible to view official reports by the crash investigation committees as well as supportive photographic and informative reference such as Wikipedia through hyperlinks (the great advantage of E-books).
A few of the stories – such as the crash of a Saab 2000 – are highly educational. These are accidents that could happen to anyone of us, when we take poor decisions often under pressure of unexpected, adverse weather conditions. As such, I can recommend this book to all pilots in lieu of the accidents related to the changeable weather conditions over Europe, as oftentimes these are the result of insufficient preparation prior to flying into bad weather.
Sylvia Wrigley has published a good mix of well-known and lesser known crashes with a rich diversity of causes. All-in-all another fascinating book that leaves us wanting more.
