Flying is a safe way to travel. Statistically, every car journey you make puts you at far higher risk. Yet every so often the news of an air crash shakes the world. This is an examination of the causes behind some of flying's tragic disasters. In "Black Box", Nicolas Faith attempts to make sense of air disasters, examining their causes, from design to maintenance, to difficult weather and human error. Even modern safety systems have caused their problems and put added pressure on pilots. Even as air-crash investigators' methods become more sophisticated and problems are solved, there still remain some mysteries. This book starts where previous investigations left off, to provide insight into apparently baffling tragedies.
