True stories of aviation mysteries and aircraft disasters!
Nowhere have aircraft disappearances and major aviation accidents been as prevalent than the remote regions of the North. How do commercial airliners, cargo planes, military transports and strategic bombers vanish without a trace? And how can the best designed aircraft with experienced crews unexpectedly crash with fatal consequences?
If you enjoy reading intriguing stories on aviation history, aircraft mysteries and air disasters - fasten your seat belt. From takeoff, in flight, and until the final moments, through searches and controversy, the tragic circumstances are presented with meticulous insight, detailing major disappearances and accidents in the Last Frontier, including some of the deadliest crashes in United States history.
My books provide a unique perspective on the technology and human factors involved in aviation tragedies, infusing an in-depth analysis of aircraft operations, pilot procedures, weather phenomenon and aviation systems. The stories provide a historic background on the development of aviation, molding the technical jargon of aviation science into an easily readable understanding of the factual events. Included with the stories are many never before published photographs, maps and illustrations.
I am a retired military and civilian pilot with thirty-two years flying experience.
