Overview

Describes and explains how and why the key aviation incidents happened--some 85 case in all. This large print edition is for the benefit of readers going right through the printed book studying the whys and hows in detail. A good present for those who remember the headlines at the time and always wondered what really happened.

Part 1 has Chapters 1-7, and Part 2 has Chapters 8-18. Updates and the glossary (which we had to omit for lack of space) will be in Part 3.
