Christine Negroni

More Information

Description:

"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 One of The Wall Street Journal's 3 Books Every Geek Should Read This Fall 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 safer. In The Crash Detectives, veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni takes us inside crash investigations from the 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 quick-thinking pilots averted catastrophe and kept hundreds of people alive. Tying in aviation science, performance psychology, and extensive interviews with pilots, engineers, human factors specialists, crash survivors, and others involved in accidents all over the world, The Crash Detectives is an alternately terrifying and inspiring book that might just cure your fear of flying, and will definitely make you a more informed passenger. "Christine Negroni combines her investigative reporting skills with an understanding of the complexities of air accident investigations to bring to life some of history's most intriguing and heartbreaking cases." -Bob Woodruff, ABC News From the Trade Paperback edition.
