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.
Great story of an adventure gone bad and the gripping reality of being on the edge of living or dying. Tells of the resolute strength the family had to survive, and the incredible skills used by the first responders to get them out alive. A Must read!
