An incredible 45,000 flights, at least, arrive successfully at their destinations every day, but a handful don't, while some come terrifyingly close to crashing. This collection of real-life accounts of both well-known and less well-known air disasters and near misses, while covering scientific factors and the political backgrounds to terrorist and military in-air incidents concisely and readably, focuses on the human element. As well as tragedy, there are redemptive stories of heroism, such as the "Miracle on the Hudson" and the story of the South Korean 747 struck by a Soviet missile in 1979 which was successfully crash-landed by its pilot. The book also covers the often ingenious, always painstaking work done by air-accident investigators, sometimes in the face of attempted cover-ups.
