The Bible of Civilian Air Disasters!
on 22 May 2001
I agree, a compelling read to either dip into or immerse yourself in. My only slight criticism is there seems to be a lack of balance in the depth of each story, for instance one crash is covered significantly over a large number of pages with seemingly trivial information whereas other landmark crashes are a simple paragraph. That said, I could not put it down, carried it everywhere, and read excerpts to anyone who would listen! A good mix of photographs and diagrams too. The most amazing photograph for me was a plane taxiing past wreckage on a runway of a plane that had crashed the night before, only to read that the taxiing plane takes off and crashes 30 minutes later. Takes your breath away...
