Product description

Review

A lively dissection of history-making accidents... Negroni tracks the astonishing progress in understanding the combination of mechanical flaws and human frailties that bring down aircraft. -- Charles Bremner The Times Fascinating ... For all the horror stories in The Crash Detectives, the reasonable reader will leave the book more sanguine about modern commercial airline travel than before. Wall Street Journal The evolution of air safety is rooted in catastrophe. Christine Negroni pulls back the curtain on the people, the places, and the tragedies that have shaped this process over the decades - an unflinching look at a system that most of us take for granted. -- Patrick Smith, bestselling author of COCKPIT CONFIDENTIAL Christine Negroni is a talented aviation journalist who clearly understands the critically important part the human factor plays in aviation safety. She "gets it". -- Captain Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger, author of HIGHEST DUTY and pilot of US Airways 1549, the 'Miracle on the Hudson' Mysteries are always fascinating; aviation mysteries are especially so because they involve ordinary people. In The Crash Detectives, Christine Negroni combines her investigative reporting skills with an understanding of the complexities of air accident investigations to bring to life some of history's most intriguing and heartbreaking cases, reminding us that even in the 21st century, aviation still holds elements of the unknown. -- Bob Woodruff, ABC News
