With over 40 years of professional flying with the USAF & airline flying, and countless hours of private plane & corporate jets, I was compelled to find out the forces that would cause a professional pilot to put his aircraft in such a situation that would lead to a crash. Carol Shaben’s description of a young pilot’s desire to log time, even under perilous conditions, is right on. Questionable navigation, pushing weather minimums, and poor management forces are accurately presented by Shaben. This is a must read for everyone involved in aviation, as well as to the flying public who daily trusts they put in the pilot to do the right thing. With today’s advancement in GPS technology, better avionics, and improved management practices, it is hoped that this type of accident would not happen again.

This story had so much potential. The most of this book is written like a magazine story. The effects of this tragedy are skimmed over and you never really get the emotional effects of this ordeal. Mostly it is a document of accomplishments of the authors father and milestone summaries for the other victim's. Never mentioned was what emotional issues that may have changed the choices each person made. They all have been on a plane since. You think that anxiety of that choice would be important.

    Not my favorite

    This book sounded so good, because I love true stories. The first part about the accident and how they survived was interesting, the last half about about the legal stuff was totally boring to me, I couldn't finish reading it.
