Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Although the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery sifted through thousands of newly found documents on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan and came to the conclusion they died as castaways, Gillespie, the group's executive director, allows readers to work through data and come up with their own conclusions. He covers the predictors of the tragedy, including the disaster at Luke Field and the errors in flight planning that marked Earhart's progress, and closely details the events of the contemporary and more recent searches. The CD-ROM contains gems such as primary documents. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
