Product Description

Product Description

It takes more than whimsy for a giant airline to ground a multimillion-dollar jumbo jet. What the renowned investigative writer John Fuller stumbled upon was a jet-age ghost story – crews wouldn’t fly the plane because of the reappearing apparitions of a dead pilot and flight engineer from a crashed sister ship. It was the famed Lockheed Tristar; the first jumbo jet ever to crash, in the Florida Everglades, with the loss of 101 persons.
In his investigation into this amazing story, John G. Fuller is led inexorably not only to repeated eyewitness experiences of the dead men’s reappearances before flight crews, but also to his own personal conviction of a spiritual immortality, of life after death.
Fuller’s book is a true-life suspense thriller. After a classic reconstruction of the mysterious crash itself, Fuller interviews scores of airlines flight personnel and explores every facet of every “ghost” report. A rigorous skeptic who has always written with professional thoroughness on both scientific subjects and subjects on the frontiers of life, Fuller uncovers startling evidence of contact with the spirit of the dead flight engineer Don Repo. It is a spine-tingling, persuasive account with implications of spiritual realities that are of increasing interest in today’s world of ever more extraordinary scientific breakthroughs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read with an Open Mind 20 April 1999
By A Customer
John Fuller has worked well on this book.
Some years a Lockheed L1011 Tri-star crashed in Florida's Everglade though there was loss of life, it wasn't as great as you would imagine. The airline was able to salvage a large amount of the crashed aircraft and parts were used on other aircraft.
At that time mysterious things started to happen on aircraft where these "salvaged" parts had been used. It was said that a member of the flight crew, who was killed in the Everglades crash was seen on these aircraft.
It is an excellent read but PLEASE approach it with an open mind. John Fuller has researched this book very well.
He has also written "The Airmen Who Wouldn't Die". Which tells a similar tale about the ill-fated British Airship of the 1930's R101. Another EXCELLENT book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Im a sceptic but... 24 Jun 2004
I found this book thought provoking. The descriptions of the crash and recovery was truly fascinating. Whilst of course being disturbing it gives you a tremendous respect for airline staff and those invloved in recoveries of this kind. Their bravery and dedication is astounding.
I am a sceptic about ghosts etc but the book really does make you think about your views and whether you are corect in them. Clearly those who have witnessed are wholly convinced of what they have seen.
An excellent read

3.0 out of 5 stars A book about writing a book 22 May 2001
By TRGina
The description of the crash and recovery was compelling, more in-depth than I had ever read, and the fight for life for those survivors. However, the story dropped into a narrative on how the author researched his book (this book!), and then concentrated on the spiritual rather than scientific study of the ghostly reports. Although very interesting and somewhat chilling in places, I really expected a more thorough chronology of the sightings, although, as the author pointed out, many people were not willing to be on record about what they had experienced.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 13 Oct 2008
What an amazing book, truly gripped and the fact that it is all based on true events makes it all the more exciting. It really has opened my eyes to things i otherwise would cast aside. To enjoy this book i do think you need to have a general interest into the Aviation Industry, i think this is why i found the book fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars a fantastic read 14 April 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have found the book a fantastic read! I have always believed in ghosts and this book really puts that belief into a fact! If you have any doubts about ghosts,I suggest that you read the book and then see what you believe! ghosts don't just haunt old buildings and such,but to haunt a modern airliner? That is something else entirely!

I think this book title needs to be changed to "The researching for the book of the Ghost of flight 401"
As others have already mentioned, this book is really about the research that went into the writing of the book more than anything else.
It was interesting especially in the beginning finding out why the plane crashed in the first place, but there was nothing in the book that I didn't really already know from then on.
There was quite alot of content in the book that made me feel the need to skip pages as I found myself losing interest, (refering to the authors previous books as just one example) which were totally irrelevant to this book. I actually felt he needed to find something to fill pages with as the ghost sightings were maybe not enough in themselves as those concerned with the sightings were not willing to talk. (Not the authors fault)
I found the film more interesting than the book itself which was made in 1978 staring Ernest Borgnine and a young Kim Bassinger.
The full film inccidentley can be seen on you tube.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm still a non-believer...but what if.!!! 14 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book years ago and watched the tv movie, great stuff.
I consider myself a level headed person and never believed in ghosts and spooks.
But you've got to ask why would professional pilots and cabin staff make this story up, anyone reporting such sightings were grounded and sent to the company shrink,putting there jobs on the line.
The book is well written and draws you in,read it in one sitting
