A classic combining several types of aviation disaster book in one. Vividly retells incidents that made headlines at the time, while explaining why they happened and the lessons they provided to make air travel so safe today. Individuals covered include Germany's World War I fighter ace, the Red Baron, aviatrix Amelia Earhart, and Captain Piche who ran out of fuel and managed to glide 80 miles to plunge down safely on a mid-Atlantic island. Includes the Comet disasters that revealed the dangers of metal fatigue, the U.K.'s Kegworth air disaster where the pilots shut down the good engine, the worst-ever aircraft disasters (Tenerife and JL123), the mid-air collision between an airliner full of children and a freighter after which one of the fathers killed the air traffic controller he thought responsible, the supersonic Concorde, 9/11, AA587, the Hudson River ditching, and the mysterious loss of Air France AF447... To avoid repetition, explanations of technical terms and procedures were placed in an appendix, now published separately as "THE FLYING DICTIONARY." Makes the narratives even more interesting and a fascinating read in its own right.

Just as the sinking of the Titanic is embedded in the public consciousness in the English-speaking world, so the crash of JAL flight JL123 is part of the Japanese collective memory. The 1985 crash involved the largest loss of life for any single air crash in the world. 520 people, many of whom had been returning to their ancestral home for the Obon religious festival, were killed; there were only four survivors. This book tells the story of the crash, discusses the many controversial issues surrounding it, and considers why it has come to have such importance for many Japanese. It shows how the Japanese responded to the disaster: trying to comprehend how a faulty repair may have caused the crash, and the fact that rescue services took such a long time to reach the remote crash site; how the bereaved dealt with their loss; how the media in Japan and in the wider world reported the disaster; and how the disaster is remembered and commemorated. The book highlights the media coverage of anniversary events and the Japanese books and films about the crash; the very particular memorialization process in Japan, alongside Japanese attitudes to death and religion; it points out in what ways this crash both reflects typical Japanese behaviour and in what ways the crash is unique.

On January 15, 2009, about 1527 eastern standard time, US Airways flight 1549, an Airbus Industrie A320-214, N106US, experienced an almost complete loss of thrust in both engines after encountering a flock of birds and was subsequently ditched on the Hudson River about 8.5 miles from LaGuardia Airport (LGA), New York City, New York. The flight was en route to Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Charlotte, North Carolina, and had departed LGA about 2 minutes before the in-flight event occurred. The 150 passengers and 5 crewmembers evacuated the airplane via the forward and overwing exits. One flight attendant and four passengers were seriously injured, and the airplane was substantially damaged beyond repair. The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the ingestion of large birds into each engine, which resulted in an almost total loss of thrust in both engines and the subsequent ditching on the Hudson River.
