Flying is one of the safest forms of modern transport, and as a means of travelling quickly over long distances its role is unsurpassed. Modern airline pilots and their crews are trained to the highest possible standards and endeavour to make the passenger's journey as smooth and comfortable as possible.
However, things can still go terribly wrong.
Emergency is a collection of true stories about such events, where disaster seems imminent. Yet each situation is concluded without loss of life thanks to the skill of the pilots and their crews, whqse bravery and resourcefulness have earned them well deserved commendations.
Written by a former British Airways Captain who has spoken at first hand with the and crews involved in all the incidents recorded here, the book offers a unique insight into what really happened : not the passengers' eye - view, which in many cases is already documented, but the view from the flight deck of the aircraft itself.
( ... ) Yet for the passenger, this is a remarkably reassuring book, which shows how the capable crews of modem airlines can react quickly and effectively to bizarre situations not covered by training manuals or the flight simulator.
