Customer Reviews

Well written and informative

The author does a good job of explaining in thorough and simple ways how this disaster occurred. I'm not a pilot but I was able to comprehend, by the author's descriptions, all the complex factors that contributed to the crash.

Informative & Interesting.

It's easy to Monday morning quarterback a crash when we don't know what we don't know.

As a private pilot I learned a lot from reading this book. It brings together all the factors involved in the crash to create a clear picture of how the pilots got into a situation from which they were unable to escape.
