250 Tons of Winged Destruction
was flying in to London's Heathrow Airport with one engine ablaze or a night of lashing rain and zero visibility. And if International Airlines' mammoth 747 crashed it could wipe out the airport.
In the cockpit of the crippled giant Captain Huston fought to keep his plane in the air as she limped across the Atlantic.
On the ground the vast resources of the world's busiest international airport stood by on full alert ready to meet the terrifying threat of the greatest disaster in the history of civil aviation.
Edward Alan Scott ( 1946 ) was born in the United States. Since then he has lived and worked around the world in education and as a novelist.
His first book, Project Dracula, was published in 1971 when he was working in Ireland as medical officer at an exclusive boys' school. Leaving the country for research Mayday 747, he virtually lived at Heathrow Airport gathering material for the novel. The depth of his research is typical of his meticulous approach to any literary project : every fact is checked in painstaking fashion to ensure total accuracy and authenticity. When the novel was finished, Edward A. Scott took a teaching post in Lybia for six months before settling in Malta where he was working on a third book.
