    Alright but not accurate...

    This book contains a wide variety of Millitary documents conducting plane crashes since the year 2000. While there is a lot of information in these reports, some of the documents were inaccurate and/or biased. While there are reports, some specualtions are made that are somewhat unlikely or make you wonder how they come up with them. This book helped me write my report I did for a class, but the information was slightly off. Although it does explain how the crashes may have happened it does go too much in depth with any of them. While it does seem that some of this info may be true it as I said before does not explain in a way which is easy to comprehend. Therefore it is sometimes difficult to process or understand information in these reports. However it does give some recorded info on times these crashes happened and some of the problems. Yes there are many situations such as engine failures, mechanics problems, and aircraft simply heing shot down. Otherwise everything else seems to be accurate enough... <p>
