    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

    “The Crash Detectives” by Christine Negroni was a good read To begin with full disclosureI was given this book through a Goodreads Giveaway While the title alludes to “detectives” there really isn’t much of that in the narrative But that aside the tale was still very interesting The book is a reporting of many of the major air mish

    I wish this had been so much detailed it seemed very superficial and it was a shame I wanted to get really deep and into details which each case and that just didn't happen unfortunately I also wish the stories hadn't been mixed together; it was hard to keep track of which story was which I'd rather have the stories seperated and

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
