  • Again, Jeff Wise excels in explaining all the aspects of an aero-tragedy in the clearest, brightest and fascinating way. His research and knowledge are great, but his deep and important conclusions are even better, enlightening and add meaning to an event that is hard to find meaning in.


  • This was a very short piece on Flight 9525 in which a commercial (co)pilot intentionally crashed an Airbus 320 into a mountain. The psychological profile was excellent in providing background, not as an excuse, but for for better understanding of this awful tragedy.



  • Very interesting and insightful ebook on Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who crashed Germanwings Flight 4U9525 in the French Alps. You really get a good sense of where he was coming from and what was his probable motivation. The author did a great job of keeping it interesting all the way through. Great quick read.
