This book is an excellent introduction to the field of air crash investigation. I find learning about how accidents are investigated assures me that if an accident does happen, investigators will find out why it did and recommend how a similar one can be prevented in future. #nuyear #theaircrashbureau

rabbitprincess Another good book on this subject, with a Canadian focus, is 2y
TrishB Good choice 👍🏻 2y

I‘m thinking, Ron and Harry would have no trouble getting a job at #theaircrashbureau considering all the crashing of flying objects they cause 🚙


TrishB Great choice and pick ❤️ 2y

#NuYear #TheAircrashBureau “On October 12, 1972, a plane carrying a team of young rugby players crashed into the remote, snow-peaked Andes. Out of the forty-five original passengers and crew, only sixteen made it off the mountain alive. For ten excruciating weeks they suffered deprivations beyond imagining.And to survive, they were forced to do what would have once been unthinkable ...” I saw this in the cinema when I was 16. Incredible story

Oryx For some reason, this of one of those films that my sister and I watched about 30 times when we were teenagers... Probably a combo of only having videos taped off the TV and not much else going on in small town NI! But it is a really good film and amazing/harrowing true story. 2y
DeborahSmall @Oryx I watched it with my sister too. First time we saw it was at the cinema and we felt so grown up going for the first time 2y
Kimberlone Love the movie, have had the book forever and still haven‘t read. Going to get to it this year! 2y
Cinfhen So glad somebody choose this book!! It was so beautifully written and such an incredible story of courage and survival @Reviewsbylola I'm pretty sure I spotted this book in one of your #bookhauls!!!! 2y

I‘m terrified of flying, so I think I love reading about plane crashes. It reinforces my fears. 😁 I loved this book and love this show on the Smithsonian Channel. #nuyear #theaircrashbureau

jpmcwisemorgan I skipped the part of Stiff that talked about bodies from plane crashes. I don‘t think I can read about airplane disasters. You‘re much braver than I am. 2y
TrishB I‘m flying next week so I‘m forgetting about all these posts by then!! 2y
Suzze @TrishB Oops. Sorry. I should have thought of that. Have a great flight! 2y

I have not read this but have seen the trailer of the film, so I know there‘s a plane crash in it. 😄
After a private plane crashes, two strangers find themselves stranded in the remote wilderness during winter, and have to rely on each other for chances of survival.

#NuYear #day11 #TheAircrashBureau This is the first book that came to mind for this prompt! Eleven people board a private jet on a foggy night in Martha‘s Vineyard, 16mins later, the only survivors are painter Scott Burroughs & the 4yrold son of a very wealthy media tycoon. Questions arise of whether it was a deliberate act or just pilot error, but as Scott becomes closer to the little boy, people start questioning his motives.

Cathythoughts A good book , I thought 2y
TrishB I enjoyed this one 👍🏻 2y
bedandabook I enjoyed this one too! 2y
Hollie This was in my first BOTM box! 2y
SandyW It's been awhile, but I remember recommending this one! 2y

Lost in Shangri-La | MItchell Zuckoff

This is the fascinating true story of 3 Americans forced to acclimate to life with the natives of New Guinea after surviving a plane crash on the remote island in 1945, a time when most of the island was still unchartered. Amazing to read about the friendships formed between the survivors and the tribespeople of this island, especially considering hardly anything was known about the tribes at the time.

Cinfhen 🙌🏻Great choice! Forgot all about this book....clever 💡💡💡💡💡 2y
Reviewsbylola Nice one. 2y
