AirlineBiz.Com Book Review

Christine Negroni does a great job following the events of TWA 800. A must read!

EXCELLENT EXPOSE

THIS BOOK IS A QUICK READ. IT CATCHES YOUR INTEREST FROM THE START AND RAISES SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FAA AND BOEING AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE AIRLINES AND HOW MUCH CONCERN THEY ACTUALLY HAVE FOR PASSENGER SAFETY. IT IS WELL WORTH BUYING AND READING.

Finally - a credible theory

Enough with the hype and the conspiracy theories on plane crashes - this author tells it like it is, that is, that maintenance and design of airplanes may be fundamentally unsafe, and our government agencies are too busy fighting with each other for turf to uncover and publicize the facts. All air travellers should read this book and think hard about whether our demands for frequent, low cost travel comes at the cost of predictable fatalities. A must read for the sophisticated traveller and the person who really wants to get at the truth.

Finally, some answers that make sense

I found the book really cut through all the conflicting stories about what happened to this plane. A well researched and intriguing mix of human drama and scientific detective work, and some of the characters the author discovered at the crash scene are too strange to be believed.
