Product description

Amazon Review

At 13.46 on August 2, 1947 a British South American Airways plane called Star Dust took off from Buenos Aires to fly over the Andes to Santiago in Chile. It never arrived there. The radio tower at Santiago received a message from Star Dust at 17.41 saying that the plane was a few minutes away from landing. The message ended with the mysterious word, "STENDEC" which was repeated three times. After that there was silence. Star Dust had disappeared.

Many theories were advanced to explain the disappearance. There had been an explosion on board. Despite the message to the contrary, the plane had not made it over the Andes. Aliens had abducted it. (A UFO spotters' magazine later took that last, enigmatic word "STENDEC" as its title.) It was to be more than 50 years before two Argentinian climbers stumbled across debris from Star Dust which led to an explanation of its fate.

Jay Rayner is a fine journalist and the disappearance of Star Dust is a great story. His book gives a gripping and readable account of the plane's last journey and of the modern expedition to locate its final resting place. And, in reconstructing the background to the disaster, he pays a belated tribute to the memory of the 11 people who disappeared with the plane. --Nick Rennison

Review

The fascinating story of the mysterious loss of an aircraft, Star Dust, in the Andes in 1947; the rickety airline company that flew the plane and the discovery of the plane and its crash victims in January 2000.
