Overview

When a family outing in a private plane takes a tragic turn, a Memorial Day trip becomes an unforgettable 15 hours of danger, rescue efforts, and miracles.

On a clear Saturday morning, professional fire captain and private pilot Brian Brown, his wife, and younger daughter headed out in their Cessna Sky Hawk for a weekend with their elder daughter.  But unexpected severe conditions send the craft into the treacherous War Eagle Idaho mountainside…a remote place that would make communication and rescue nearly impossible—if they survived. 

This captivating story, featured on The Today Show, is about a family in crisis, emergency plans for survival, and the incredible orchestration of local, state, and national rescue workers who brave unpredictable obstacles to accomplish the unimaginable.

An intriguing account of faith and courage reminds readers that one’s darkest hour can become the landscape for miracles to unfold.

    I enjoyed reading the parts from the actual pilot. The multiple sections that included actual air traffic communication, procedures and information about equipment, etc was very tedious to me, but i am a female; maybe a male would enjoy that all. haha. I would have enjoyed actual commentary from the others on board, it was given from the pilot perspective.

    Riveting True Story




    If you were in a plane crash, how would you survive? What would you do? This is an actual account of a small plane crashing in the wilderness with a family aboard. It is truly riveting, and will bring you to tears. The writers tell the story in both the first person view of the family and from the first person view of the responders. It makes a good story, great. I would recommend this to everyone who has a family, who flies, who is a first responder, or who knows a first responder….basically everyone. Pick up a copy and enjoy an amazing story.
