NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Negroni is a talented aviation journalist who clearly understands the critically important part the human factor plays in aviation safety Captain Chesley Sully Sullenberger pilot of US Airways 1549 the Miracle on the Hudson A fascinating exploration of how humans and machines fail leading to air disasters from Amelia Earhart to MH370 and how the lessons learned from these accidents have made flying saferIn The Crash Detectives veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni takes us inside crash investigations from the I had the same thoughts about this book as another reviewer first I thought the title was misleading and second I thought it could use some editing and a change in focus The title Crash Detectives led me to think the book would be about the people who actually investigate plane crashes Instead it's of a scattered collection of stories about various airplane mishaps and in some cases the politics behind assigning blame At times the book felt like a summary of other people's books about air disasters rather than a complete narrative I almost always wanted details either about the disaster itself the crew or the passengers And I wanted her to tell me a story from start to finish rather than jumping away in the middle while acknowledging that she was leaving the reader hanging If you know you're leaving me hanging please don't Also the author inserts herself into the narrative at random times I didn't find anything wrong with this on the face of it but if she was going to do so I really wanted to know Who is she? How is she connected to the airline industry?

Early days of the jet age to the present including the search for answers about what happened to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 As Negroni dissects what happened and why she explores their common themes and most important what has been learned from them to make planes safer Indeed as Negroni shows virtually every aspect of modern pilot training airline operation and airplane design has been shaped by lessons learned from disaster Along the way she also details some miraculous saves when uick thinking pilots averted catastrophe and kept hundreds of people aliveT An excellent book about many recent air crashes why they happened and why they didn't Among the evidence the collision of two jumbo jets on Tenerife in 1977 was an example of everything gone wrong exacerbated by one pilot's desire to keep his on time record intact; the crash of a sightseeing jet over Antarctica was due to bad preparation bad documentation and governmental cover up; nobody shot at TWA 800 over Long Island in 1996 the crash was most likely a flaw in the way fuel is stored Among the myths debunked are that the disappearance of an Air France Rio to Paris flight over the South Atlantic had anything at all to do with terrorismCommercial flying has never been safer but in the era of fly by wire and nearly total computer control of avionics and the flying process new ills emerge Some governments overstate their air traffic systems' ability to follow aircraft in their space which helps explain the multiple misstatements and incompetencies surrounding Malayasian 370 in a country where civilian and military control of aircraft are under the direction of the same government minister Christine Negroni is our leading civilian expert concerning crashes like these and CRASH DETECTIVES makes for lively reading It is true that she sometimes indulges in sarcasm and humor but in dealing with preventable ills like corporate greed and governmental cupidity a light tone is not out of place My only gripe is that the story of a Canadian jet that left Montreal with only half the fuel it needed to reach its destination had not been so disjointed in the telling High recommendationUpdated September 1 2018
