The Crash of Eastern Airlines Flight 212

Final approach: The Crash of Eastern Airlines Flight 212, by William Stockton

Reviews:

"On September 11 1974, Eastern Airlines flight 212 from Charleston desended into a fog bank on its approach to Douglas Municipal Airport in Charlotte, N.C To the pilots, it seemed like the start of another routine landing. But in a few seconds the big DC-9 would plungew to earth with incredible fury - smashing to pieces and bursting into flames, killing all but ten of the eighty-two passengers and crew aboard . It would be one of the worst commercial air disasters in recent U.S history. How did it happen, and why? William Stockton has set out to answer those questions in this painstaking recreation of the flight- from the hours before take off to the months of official investigation after the crash."

"a minute-by-minute, sometimes second-by-second, narrative of the tragedy. The result is a story of intense, powerful drama - about the pilots, passengers, air traffic controllers - and a sharp, detailed exploration of the complex systems, human and mechanical, which directs air traffic across the skies of America. The 1974 disaster at Charlotte was caused by one small mistake - but the evidence assembled has implications far beyond the fate of a single airplane"
